DAVIDSONS PLUM (Davidsonia pruriens)
Also known as 'Aussie plum' or Ooray, this very attractive shrub is an Australian native. It has long serrated leaves and attractive reddish new growth. The plum-sized dark purple fruit is too sour to eat fresh, but makes a wonderful colourful addition to stewed apples, or is delicious bottled or stewed on its own. It is great for chutneys as well, but would be worth growing as a specimen even if it didn't fruit. Plant in some shade and feed and water well.
