Item specifics

Features: Edible, Native  
KAKADU PLUM Terminalia ferdinandiana "BUSH TUCKER"

The Kakadu Plum has been identified with the highest vitamin C content of any fruit in the world.

 It contains 3000mg of vitamin C per 100g of fruit. Oranges, contain just 50mg of vitamin C per 100g fruit.

A deciduous tree, spreading up to 10 m, very common in savannahs in the top end. A pale green to yellow fruit, with a pleasant flavour and high content of Vitamin C, higher than oranges.

The fruit are produced in the late wet to early dry season, March to June. They are used extensively in the Bush food industry, for jams and chutneys.

This plant is also widely used medicinally. The gum that exudes from the bark is also edible.

A preparation from the inner bark is used to treat sores, boils, backache, ringworm. In the past it was used for leprosy.

The seed is quite large. It is very tasty. When not fully ripe, they can be bitter.

Soak seeds in cold water for 36 hours. Seeds could need to be nicked, sanded or filed to encourage germination. The seed is surrounded a dry flesh that can be sanded to expose the hard inner shell, about the size of an almond. Inside this hard inner shell in a much smaller 'nut', about the size and length of an almond sliver (15mm x 3mm) which is the actual part of the fruit that is the seed. No wonder they can take a long time to germinate with no treatment!

Plant seeds just under the surface (1cm) in a well drained mixture, (potting mix: perlite: washed sand) in full sun. Keep moist and warm until germination, which may take up to 3 months.
