BLUE QUANDONG

Blue Quandong fruit at the Cairns Botanic GardenBy Merryjack CC BY 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Elaeocarpus angustifolius
Description

Fast growing rainforest tree. The species is well regarded for its timber and as a key in regenerating rainforest. The fruit of this species is round and blue, between 20 and 30 mm across, and has a seed with deep convolutions in its shell. These are eaten whole by cassowaries, woompoo pigeon and spectacled flying foxes, which pass the nut undamaged. A large tree up to 50 metres tall, usually with elaborate buttressed roots. Flowers, fruit, foliage and shape make this an ideal tree for large gardens or parks.

Other Names: Elaeocarpus grandis, #CV

Blue Quandong

Ours outgrew our garden in 6 years. Timber and branches very splitty in even mild breezes. Either be prepared to coppice it HARD, or plant it well away from anything you don't want it to drop branches on. Awesome pioneer, but not really for suburban yard | Mark Oakwood - Wallsend, NSW 30-Jan-2020
