kakadu plum



  • The fruit of a tall slender northern tree, Terminalia ferdinandiana, very similar in appearance and structure to a large green olive. It has a tart gooseberry-like flavour and is best cooked and sieved to get rid of the fibrous material.The pulp is used in jams, relishes and sauces. It can be stripped of its flesh in the same way as a mango, or it can be pickled whole in sweetened vinegar. It has a very high vitamin C content (3 per cent).
