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.
