ABOUT THE PLANT
Myrtle, with the Latin name Myrtus communis, belongs to the Myrtaceae family. It is an evergreen shrub with small, dark green, leathery and oval shaped leaves that spreads an aromatic scent over the surrounding area. It can reach a height of 5 meters. Myrtle is native to the Mediterranean region but is not found in Central Europe as it is not hardy.
The plant thrives best in sun or semi-shady locations, preferably in low-calcium, neutral or slightly acidic soil. The flowering period lasts from May to August. Many small white flowers develop in the leaf axils.
An approximately 1 cm large, spherical, blue-black berry fruit grows from the lower ovary. In addition, various liqueurs are made from fruits, which are offered as Myrto Rosso or Myrto Bianco made from white flowers for digestive purposes. The liqueurs are particularly popular in Sardinia and Corsica.
