Kakadu Plum

I dont soak. I just rub on sandpaper until I get though outside layer then plant, so far always successful. The problem I have is keeping them alive in winter, this year they will be in my hothouse

They are a nice bush tucker, a little tart but always have u going back for more. Just remember you must only eat them once they've fallen from the tree (or been shacken off!)

To aid the germination, of these seeds:- Soak in boiling hot water/use a hacksaw to crack shell. The actual seed is very small, inside !
