Burdekin Plum Pleiogynium timorese, also known as sweet plum and tulip plum, is a semi-deciduous Australian native rainforest tree that grows to around 20m in height. It produces edible fruit only when fully ripe. The fruit is large, dark and plump and contains a single seed. It has been described as one of the best bush tucker species in Australia. It can be eaten raw (when fully ripe) or made into jams, chutney or even wine. It is incredibly hardy and drought-tolerant. It is dioecious (that is, with separate male and female plants) so it is better to plant in groups of three or more to make sure it produces beautiful fruit.

What do I do when I receive my plants?
