Smooth Davidsons Plum 175mm Pot

Davidsonia johnsonii - Smooth Davidson''s Plum

Description of plant at maturity:
Smooth Davidson’s Plum produces soft, fleshy fruits that are high in antioxidants and vitamins. It’s a medium-sized rainforest species native to eastern Australia, though it’s rare to find in the wild as its infertile seeds means it can only be propagated from cuttings or root division.

From November to February, this tree blossoms with small pink flowers that later turn into edible purple berries, up to 50mm in diameter, growing in clusters along the stem. They are deliciously sour in flavour and work well in both sweet and savory dishes. They’ve also been known to make a pleasant tasting wine.

Fruiting typically occurs between February and May, though mature trees in warmer areas may fruit right through to August. To harvest, give the trunk a firm shake to dislodge any ripe plums, or leave them to drop on their own when they’re ready.

This tree grows well in full sun or part shade. When young it can also be grown as an indoor tree, as it needs protection from harsh sun, frosts and winds. This species will tolerate poor soil, but performs best in moist, fertile soil. It is not susceptible to many pests and diseases.

Smooth Davidson’s Plum has glossy, hairless leaves that start out red and turn a deep green. It is a medium-sized tropical/subtropical ornamental tree that can grow between 4 and 8 metres in height, with a slender palm-like silhouette, making it a great choice as a central feature or shade tree.
