Bush Food Plants

No garden could require less maintenance but give more rewards than an Australian native bushfood garden. Often referred to in Australian slang as Bush Tucker, the plants are well adapted to our harsh climate and their hardiness sees little use for fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides. Most bush foods are small due to the small amount of water they contain however they are packed with plenty of goodness and flavour.

The bushfood industry is a growing one, however as a very new industry it has had to tackle species research, toxicology, cultivation practices, harvesting methods, market potential, consumer education and distribution networks all at once so many commercial growers are required to find their own markets. For the home grower there is nothing quite as Australian as growing our native bush foods and using them to create a truly unique and fascinating Australian cuisine.
