Austromyrtus tenuifolia is also known as Narrow-Leaf Myrtle and Tall Midgenberry,  Midjin and Midyim. It grows to a height of 1 to 2 metres and prefers sites with moist soils but good drainag. Midjin's fruit tastes identical to the smaller Midgenberry (Austromyrtus dulcis) but Midjin has a more upright form and provides higher yields of sweet tasting white and speckled fruit once established. It prefers morning sun but will handle part shade. The fruits can be eaten raw or used to make jams. Midjin occurs naturally in central-eastern New South Wales in the Sydney Basin region so it prefers sandy soils with loam but will handle clay soils which has been forked and mulched. Midjin can also be grown in a large pot.
