Myrica cerifera, commonly known as wax myrtle or southern wax myrtle, bayberry, and others, are relatively small trees whose fruit are very waxy. The fruit and leaves are both used as spices. Though the fruit are techinically edible, there's not much edible flesh to them and there's some concern about their wax containing carinogens.[1] The leaves can be used as an insect repellant.
