Davidson’s Plum – Davidsonia jerseyana

Davidson’s PlumDavidsonia jerseyana – is listed as an endangered species restricted to north-east NSW as far south as Wardell. I have two trees in my garden that have been flowering again recently along with one North Queensland Davidson’s Plum – Davidsonia pruriens. The fruit has started to form along the trunk of the tree up to the canopy. This green fruit eventually become deep purple and is often used for jam.
