Podocarpus spinulosus fullscreen
Fruit Trees > Bush foods Australia > Dwarf Plum Pine
Dwarf Plum Pine is a member of an ancient family of conifers called Podocarps. The fruit of this specimen is much like it's tall cousin the Plum Pine - Podocarpus elatus, where the fleshy, edible part is actually a swollen stem that holds the seed. The 'fruit' is sweet and refreshing with a jelly like texture. Dwarf Plum Pine is a medium shrub or small tree usually around 2m, with glossy leaves that end in a sharp point. The trees are dioecious, meaning male and female parts are on separate trees. It is best to plant at least 3 seedling to ensure there is the likelihood of at least one female. The tree is found in sheltered East Coast locations and gullies in adjacent ranges.
