Lilly Pilly berries are small fruits, averaging 1 to 2 centimeters in length, and have a round to oval shape with a broad middle tapering to curved ends. Some berries may have a shallow depression at the top, while others have remnants of the blossom at the non-stem end. The tiny berries grow in large clusters, and the skin is thin, firm, shiny, and taut, ranging in color from white, pink-red, violet, to magenta, depending on the variety. Underneath the surface, the thin, white flesh is distinctly crisp with an aqueous, airy, cotton-like consistency. Some consumers compare the berry's crispness to the succulent nature of eating a nashi pear. Depending on the variety, the flesh may also be seedless or contain a pea-size hard seed. Lilly Pilly berries emit a clove-like aroma and are mildly acidic with a sweet-tart, musky, and metallic flavor. Many varieties will also have fruity, spice-filled notes reminiscent of cinnamon, pears, cranberries, and apples. It is important to note that each type of Lilly Pilly will vary in flavor and texture, and growing conditions and climate may alter the berry's taste.
