Governors Plum - seedling

It's best to plant AWAY from pet dogs, chickens, kids because of sharp long thorns may injure the eyes. For this reason it may not always be suitable as a hedge or screen. I am replanting mine outside the fence as it will protect itself against kangaroos. | Julie - Lismore, NSW 24-May-2016

Gamefowl1's Edible Fruits
Update: 19hrs26mins

Comments: - Quite an attractive bush, but can have very large thorns. I find the small fruit pleasant with a mild sweet flavour. Unfortunately this did not fruit for many years and STILL has very small amounts of fruit, despite there being three adjacent from one another, with beehives closeby. 

Planted: 1999

Height 4 metres

Growing: In the Ground
