Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) is a small deciduous tree found growing wild extensively through out the subtropical woodlands of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. It bears abundant crop of small plum-like fruits.

The fruit has a very high content of vitamin C, in fact holds the World Record. It’s full of antioxidants, folic acid and iron.

Also known as the Bush Plum, the Kakadu Plum is a nutrient-rich, antioxidant powerhouse! Boasting the highest Vitamin C levels of ANY fruit in the world, the Kakadu Plum is a tart little berry that is best enjoyed in small portions. We love it with homemade muffins or adding a pinch to smoothies.

Kakadu Plum has exceptional nutritional and antiseptic properties and has been an important food and medicine in Northern Australia for millennia.
