Fruit Trees

The Blue Quandong ๐Ÿ’™

 The Blue Quandong is a fast growing rainforest tree. The species is well regarded for its timber and as a key element in regenerating rainforest. The fruit of this species is round and blue, between 20 and 30 mm across, and has a seed with deep convolutions in its shell.

These are eaten whole by cassowaries, woompoo pigeon, and spectacled flying foxes, who pass the nut undamaged. A large tree grows up to 50 metres tall, usually with elaborate buttressed roots.
Flowers, fruit, foliage, and shape make this an ideal tree for large gardens or parks ๐Ÿ’™ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #bluequandong #backyardgarden
