The delicios MURTA BERRY (Ugni molinae) grows wild only in Southern Chile in the temperate rainforest regions of the Lake District, Chiloé Islands and the fjords of Patogonia. It has been locally used for millennia because of its wonderful flavor and aroma and also because it is a Super Food, with more than 2 X the antioxidants of blue berries.
Because this magical berry is only found fresh and wild in Chile Isla Natura freeze dries it each harvest season to offer its aromas and nutrients to you any time of the year.

Reaches you with love and care
Chile's soil is full of volcanic nutrients and its native (endemic) flora enjoy being part of a "botanical island," isolated to the north by the driest desert in the world, to the east by the Andes, to the west by the largest ocean on the planet and southwards by the ice fields of Patagonia.
It is Isla Natura's philosophy to produce products in the rural areas where the raw material comes from in order to take care of its harvest and to have a positive impact on the local economy and ensure care for the local environment. We want local people to increase the production of this superfruit that does not require chemical fertilizers to grow and that can give them an income as well a uniquely delicious and powerful wild fruit to enjoy.
Murta berries don't like snow or frosts and for this reason are found wild only along the shore of Chile's large lakes and the coast of the southern islands and fjords- the water works to moderate the temperatures and keep the murta happy!
