Purple apple-berry

Scientific Name: Billardiera longiflora

Purple apple-berry, is a small Australian vine found in cool, moist forests from southern New South Wales to Tasmania, where it is native.
It is grown in gardens for its beautiful flowers and colored fruits. Plants are happy to scamper over walls or fences. As they are not heavy, so they are at ease growing among taller shrubs.
The fruits are seedy but edible. Their taste resembles somewhat like that of apples and hence the other popular name apple berry.
