This is an Australian native ginger. A clumping plant with upright arching stems to 2 m, having long fleshy green leaves. Small white flowers on the stem ends are followed by a raceme of blue fruits, each about 1.5 cm diameter. The fruits can be easily opened and the pith around the seeds eaten - it has a refreshing lemon taste. The seeds can be spat out.
