The leaves are small and oval-shaped, about 2-3 cm long, and have a glossy green color. The flowers are small and white, borne in clusters at the ends of the branches. They bloom in spring and summer.

The fruit of the Riberry is a small, red berry, about 1 cm in diameter. It has a sweet and tart flavor with notes of cloves and cinnamon. The fruit is ripe in late summer and early autumn.
