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 ! | Derbyiter - Derby, W.A. 25-Apr-2017

Kakadu Plum

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!) | Kit River - Darwin, NT 09-Aug-2017

Kakadu Plum

I don’t 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 | Jennifer Gorman - Warnbro, WA 05-Mar-2019

Kakadu Plum (Seedling)

Gorgeous tree, bush food. Great autumn leaf colour.

Planted by the dam, needs weeding around.  The horrible foreign vines are swamping it.

My poor kakadu plum lived as a very tortured tree and struggled on, it was neglected, strangled, whipper snipped, stomped on and somehow it struggled on, until finally the cows snapped it off at ground level. 

I will have to try again.
