BLUE QUANDONG

Blue Quandong fruit at the Cairns Botanic Garden By Merryjack [CC BY 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0)], from Wikimedia CommonsBotanical 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

This is a tough little tree, surviving with very poor soil, windy conditions and little water. I love the shape of this grand tree when mature.
