Karaka (Corynocarpus laevigatus), a hardy tree with large glossy leaves and orange fruits, is found in coastal forests of the North Island and northern South Island, and on the Chatham Islands. Before people arrived in New Zealand, it probably only grew in the northern North Island. Māori cultivated and spread the plant after learning how to make the poisonous fruits edible.

Makomako, or wineberry (Aristotelia serrata), a fast-growing tree, thrives in moist fertile sites. It is especially common in forest clearings and at the edges of regenerating forest. It has thin, heart-shaped leaves, light green on the upper surface and often reddish underneath. In cold districts it is semi-deciduous, losing most of its leaves by the end of winter. Although the juicy fruit is edible, the seed within the berry is bitter and should be discarded.

Juvenile rewarewa’s leaves are softer, and often longer, than those of the adult tree.  Mature rewarewa (Knightia excelsa), also called New Zealand honeysuckle, is recognisable from its tall columnar form, similar to a poplar. It is one of New Zealand’s taller trees, growing to over 35 metres in height. Rewarewa is in the Protea family – a large group of plants, many of them found in South Africa and Australia.  Rewarewa grows in lowland forest throughout the North Island, and in the…
