more information

Growing in several varieties, the Davidson Plum was traditionally ‘bush tucker’ for the rainforest Aborigines, who had the fortitude to eat them raw despite the fruit’s sharp acidity. 

The strikingly sumptuous, deep, dark purple fruit with blood red flesh, boasts a soft juicy pulp and is one of the most nutritionally powerful native Australian fruits. The Davidson Plum has an earthy aroma, reminiscent of rosella jam and stewed rhubarb with musk and a touch of sweetness. 

The taste is tart with some astringency and a slight bitterness. Early settlers certainly would not have appreciated the high levels of antioxidants contained in the fruit, yet picked the plums for use in jams and sauces. 

The Davidson Plum contains significantly more lutein than an avocado (thought to be the primary source of lutein). Lutein is a carotenoid vitamin that plays an important role in eye health, improving symptoms in atrophic age-related macular degeneration by inhibiting inflammation. 

Along with magnesium, zinc, calcium, potassium and manganese, the Davidson Plum also contains properties thought to have antidiabetic effects and a capacity to reduce hypertension and obesity.

Due to the intense acidic flavour and low sugar content, the Davidson Plum is not often eaten as a fresh fruit. However, the tart and intense fruity flavour lends itself to be used in a range of sweet and savoury dishes, including cakes, jams, sauces, yoghurt and ice-cream. 

Research is currently being conducted on the Davidson Plum’s antimicrobial properties, which are thought to act as a natural food preservative. 

Taste the gorgeous Davidson Plum in your cooking to impart a delicious, sour flavour.

By increasing awareness, accessibility and affordability of Australian Superfoods, we aim to increase their demand and encourage their cultivation. We hope to enhance the respect for our Indigenous culture, promote the growth of Indigenous communities and foster the local food movement
