This drought hardy tree has a weeping appearance with long and slender leaves to 10cm. The fruit changes from green to yellow/orange when ripe splits open with red sticky seeds. Traditional medicinal uses: An infusion of the seeds, fruit pulp, leaves or wood was ingested for the relief of pain and cramps. Decoction of the fruits was drunk and applied for eczema. Bush medicine, for colds, cramps, itching. Seeds ground for flour. Gumbi Gumbi is resistant to both drought and frost, and grows in a wide variety of soil types, from heavy clay to mostly sand. But for best results in a home garden, choose a well-drained loamy soil or potting mix, located in full sun, and water well throughout the dry season.
Other Names: Native Apricot, Weeping Pittosoporum, Native Willow, Pittosporum phylliroides, Gumby Gumby

my sister took it when diagnosed with cervical cancer. WEnt back to Drs several months later and no cancer was found. A friend also told me a friend of theirs was given a terminal diagnosis by doctors. She took Gumby Gumby and is now fine.
