This is the new Native Plum of Australia to grow!


Burdekin Plum, also known as Tulip Plum, is an Australian native that produces plump, acidic fruits with a sweet-tart flavour. Though it is a rainforest species, it is incredibly hardy and drought tolerant, allowing it to grow even in Melbourne. Fruits are large, black, round and contain a large stone, similar to plums commonly found in the supermarket. They may be eaten raw, cooked into jams, used to flavour meat, or fermented into wine.
