Yes it has little red berries.I have tried cuttings a few times still no luck.I ll look for seeds.
Something I always wanted to ask you Permasculptor,did you once many many moons ago write an article on your back yard in sydney for the permaculture international journal?
No Fernando not me.The name just suited me at the time I started here. I was a market sculptor before having kids and finding permaculture.
Steven Ward may be the original - from PC international mag 1985 issue 59.
Don't let me bogart the name we here are all permasculptors.
My daughter and her partner brought Yerba Mate back with them from Argentina or Brazil, I forget which(they did it legally).
They also brought me a present of the little cup and silver straw to drink it with but to be honest I really didnt like it like that.
I got stuck with about a kg of this stuff and didnt dare throw it out cos it was his fav drink.
Then I hit on the idea of just putting it in a tea pot like ordinary tea and like it like that so Im on the look out for this plant too.
My lovely wife got me four plants for Christmas!! Thanks every one,
Thanks Sculptor,to this moment those PIJ journals are one of my most prized things in the bookshelf.
You are most welcome Fernando.
I only have the one but it is full of great information.
