The tomentosa shrub is extremely popular for its pink exuberant flowers that make it best suited for decorative purposes and a favorite choice of gardeners. However, the plant is also known for yielding pulpy edible fruits that are ideal for use in salads, making jams, pies or other sweet delicacies.
Tomentosa berries are harvested from the Rhodomyrtus tomentosa shrub, also known as downy rose-myrtle. The plant has dense leaves and attractive rose-pink flowers and is cultivated mostly for ornamental purpose. The flowers eventually transform into an ellipsoid, bright red berries that each contain about 40 tiny disc-shaped seeds. When fully ripe, tomentosa berries can appear dark purple due to the purplish pulp contained in the thin red skin.

Tomentosa berries prevent as well as cure skin cancer in its early stages.
Study: Clinical trials have shown that the extract of tomentosa berries is rich in piceatannol that can protect against UV-induced skin damage. This compound is known to enhance DNA activity that helps in suppressing inflammation caused by excessive exposure to UV light.
2. Heal Wounds
The leaves of the tomentosa shrub can be crushed and used to dress wounds in order to speed up the healing process as well as prevent scarring later on.
3. Treat Stomach Infections
Tomentosa berries are often used to cure various stomach problems such as diarrhea, dysentery, and inflammation of the intestine. A decoction of the tomentosa roots or leaves is also used in some traditions as a natural protective medicine after birth.
