The caper plant is native to the Mediterranean and has never been grown commercially in Australia. The value of imported processed capers sold wholesale in Australia is estimated to be around five million dollars annually and Australian diets are continuing the trend towards Mediterranean foods. This study was implemented to assess whether Australian regions with a Mediterranean type climate could support the farming of capers as an alternative Australian crop and aimed to initiate the development of a production system for capers.
