Terminalia ferdinandiana (kakadu plum)
« on: July 14, 2017, 06:36:51 am »

I've been looking high and low for a tree cutting from the Kakadu plum for quite awhile.
They are from Australia and seem to be heavily guarded by the AU natives. Also seems, they are pretty much non-existent (on paper/interwebs) in the US.
If you aren't familiar with these, the small plums they produce contain 50-100x's more vitamin C than a standard orange.
I was finally able to obtain about 20 seeds from an Australian supplier about 3-4 months ago. After about 2 months we had 2 sprouts that have been going ever since. These have tap roots that run DEEP and seem to constantly need/want a deeper container.
Anyone else have luck with these guys?
Doesn't seem to be a topic on these as of yet.
