Customer Comments on Kakadu Plum
It is good in vitamin C | Noemi Alvarez - Aventura,, FL 11-Dec-2014
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
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
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
