Native Currant (coprosma quadrifida)

A shrub of the Rubiaceae family native to south eastern Australia. It is an erect, often intricate shrub 2–5 m high. Common on sheltered slopes in moist forest country and near streams. This plant bears a small round drupe, about the size of a small pea. Over half a century ago when British fruits were scarce, it was made into puddings by some of the settlers of Tasmania, but the size and number of the seeds were objectionable.
