★★ 2y ago


Same as for the QLD species. Incredibly sour fruits. Starts fruiting younger than the QLD species and the plant is smaller, not quite as handsome, imho.

★★★ 5y ago


Looks beautiful, it's a native.

Doing OK, not in an ideal spot, but It's a rainforest plant so not a surprise, will sort more mulch etc soon, and will add a few more (wide, shady alley up side of house)

Bardon, Qld, Australia

Beatiful rough-edged foliage, a native rainforest tree with fruiting potential. Not many fruiting trees will suit shady spots but this is a natural understory plant. Needs a bit of water. Some in pots and two in the ground.

Unanderra, NSW, Australia

Tall, straight tree with spectacular purple, tart fruits.  One of my favorite aussie fruit trees.  Slow but steady performer.

My Davidson Plum is thriving next to a lillypilly in its shade. It was slow to start but now looks lovely. Am excited to see it maturing so well.

Our Davidson plum still hasn't fruited yet, but we are hopeful that good things will come to those who wait.
