For Sale Burdekin Plum Fruit Tree

You are looking at an Australian native plum tree called the Burdekin plum fruit tree. The problem with this plum is it comes off hard and it needs to be ripened away from the air. Aboriginals were said to have taught the European settlers to bury them in the ground which softens them and brings out the flavour. However an air tight container will do the trick. What sets this tree apart from other plums is that once established it can handle a long nasty dry spell common to Australia. Plant a few of these because their shade is splendid. Our webpage on this plum has some great tips on getting the most from this tree left by different people from across Australia.
