Kakadu Plum
Kakadu Plum

  • Price: $60.00

It is a slender, small to medium-sized tree found in the northern parts of NT and WA, growing up to 32m in height, with creamy-grey, flaky bark and deciduous pale green leaves. It drops all of its leaves in the dry season (northern winter) to prevent transpiration during periods of limited water availability. The flowers are small, creamy-white, perfumed, flowering from September to December followed by fruit which ripens from March onwards.

Comments Warnings : The light green fruits are usually eaten raw, although can be made into a jam which has a golden colour and tastes of honey. The fruits have been used for gourmet jams, sauces, juices, ice-cream, cosmetics, flavours and pharmaceuticals. The Australian aboriginal people pound the fruit and historically have used it as an antiseptic and a soothing balm for aching limbs. It has a high Vitamin C concentration (with as much as 50 times that of oranges), possibly the highest known of any fruit.
