This fact sheet is part of a 13-part native food series.

Davidson plum is a brilliant coloured fruit, dark blue purple on the outside and a deep reddish-pink on the inside. It has a juicy pulp and sharp acidic taste that means it is not often eaten fresh. However, the tart flavour and deep colour lend the plums to many uses in food manufacturing industries for value-added products such as jams, chutneys, sauces and yoghurt.
