Wild Orange (2 types)

This tree favours open forest country of Cape York, south east Queensland, north coast New South Wales and a pocket around Sydney.  The small scruffy tree produces round ball like fruit in the Wet Season which has a bright orange pulp and large hard seeds.

The orange/yellow pulp is eaten but the seeds are discarded.

Also known as Native Caper.

The second Wild Orange grows in dry open country from central Australia across to Queensland.  It fruits from November to February, turning yellow when ripe they drop to the ground.  The flesh tastes like mango and it’s best to swallow the small round seeds whole without chewing.

ALso known as Native Pomegranate
