Bush Banana

Bush Banana


Also known as Native Pear, the Bush Banana (Marsdenia) is now under cultivation in parts of South Australia. It thrives in drier areas where rainfall inspires the vine to fruit from November to April. It is nice raw – looks like an avocado but tastes like fresh green peas. They were sometimes cooked on hot ashes and the vine’s flowers were sucked for nectar and/or eaten raw.
