  • Quandongs are sweet, glossy plums are packed with protein, complex oils, iron and zinc. Traditionally an important food source for Indigenous Australians, the Quandong features heavily in Aboriginal mythology across the desert regions of Australia.
  • High in Vitamin C, antioxidants and protein, Quandongs were considered a wonderful substitute for meat, especially when meat was scarce.
  • The ripe, sweet, beautifully textured flesh of the Quandong is eaten fresh, although it can also be dried and stored for future use to add to cakes, desserts, juices or fruit salads.
  • A sweet taste with a balancing slightly sour and salty aftertaste and a mild aroma of dry lentils with some earthy fermented touches.

Traditionally a significant food source for Indigenous Australians, the Quandong or `Wild Peach', features heavily in Aboriginal mythology across the desert regions of Australia. Quandongs are sweet, glossy plums are packed with protein, complex oils, iron and zinc. They are high in vitamin C, antioxidants and protein. While you can eat them straight off the tree, of freeze dry them into packs, to add to cakes, desserts, juices or fruit salads. These glossy, bright, crimson fruits have been a staple for the Pitjabtjara people for over 50,000 years. Whilst the Quandong was considered a wonderful substitute for meat, the leaves and bark of its tree were used for ceremonial and medicinal purposes. Made up of 25% protein and 70% complex oils, the Quandong kernels would also be used to create powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory pastes. To this day, the Quandong is valued equally as a food and as a medicine in treating skin conditions and rheumatism.
