This one is a real double edged sword. There are so many differing opinions as to wether Lantana is edible or not. Firstly Lantana is not native to Australia but it has spread widely along the Queensland coastal areas and also into New South Wales. The shrub itself is easy to identify due to the attractive multicoloured flowers and the dark green serrated leaf.
The fruit is a small round berry about 5 mm in diameter, which turns from green to jet black when fully ripe. These berries grow in clusters and when fully ripe easily fall from their stalks . . .
