Davidsonia jerseyana – Davidsons Plum


Davidson’s plum is a small to medium sized rainforest tree from the northern NSW coast. It bears edible, sour, dark burgundy fruit that grow in clusters along the stem. It has large compound leaves, and the new growth is red. The fruit can be made into jams and jellies, used in sauces, and is high in antioxidants.

Davidson’s plum can be grown in shaded positions as well as full sun, and can also be used as an indoor plant when young. It is tall and slender, so can fit into narrow places. It prefers moist and fertile soils, but is tolerant of poorer soils. It is troubled by few pests and diseases.
The fruit drops from the tree when ripe. It has a rich, tangy taste, and an intense colour.
