Tucker Bush Burdekin Plum also known as Tulip Plum is an Australian native that produces attractive plump fruits.

Once established it is very hardy and drought tolerant and will resist light frosts. Fruits are large, black and round and contain a large stone. They can be eaten raw and also be cooked into jams, they can also be used to flavour meat or fermented into wine.

Small yellowish-green blossoms appear between January and March, developing into fruit throughout autumn and winter. Harvest the fruit when ripe but don't eat them straight away! They are hard and acidic straight off the tree and need to be stored for a few days.
