Funny name, delicious flavour! Quandongs are sweet, glossy plums are packed with protein, complex oils, iron and zinc. While you can eat them straight off the tree, we’re selling them in dried packs, to add to cakes, juices or fruit salads.

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. 

Valued equally as a food and as a medicine in the treatment of skin conditions and rheumatism, this large, tantalizing fruit is so loved by desert tribes that whether in season or not, it is hard to find a tree that does not have a makeshift ladder propped up against it to aid fruit collection by adoring fans! 

The ripe, sweet, beautifully textured flesh of the Quandong is eaten straight, though it can also be dried and stored for future use. 

It has a sweet taste with a balancing slightly sour and salty aftertaste and a mild aroma of dry lentils with some earthy fermented touches.

The ripe, sweet, beautifully textured flesh of the Quandong is eaten fresh, although it can also be dried and stored for future use.

A sweet taste with a balancing slightly sour and salty aftertaste and a mild aroma of dry lentils with some earthy fermented touches.

For convenience, dried Quandong can be reconstituted and used in a range of tantalizing desserts. 

Traditionally a significant food source for Indigenous Australians, the Quandong or ‘Wild Peach’, features heavily in Aboriginal mythology across the desert regions of Australia. 

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. 

On hunting trips, Pitjabtjara men would seek out Quandong trees, consume the fresh fruits for energy and fill their coolamon wiris (dishes) with a supply of Quandong that they could dry and store for use when meat was in short supply. 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. This large, tantalizing fruit is so loved by desert tribes that whether in season or not, it is hard to find a Quandong tree that does not have a makeshift ladder propped up against it to aid fruit collection by adoring fans!
