Quandong or “native peach” is a fruit from the Australian bush originally used by our country’s First Peoples for its incredible health benefits.
With a sharp and tart flavour, it has a higher content of vitamin C than oranges, and is a greater source of antioxidants than blueberries.
It also contains vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, selenium and iron.
Traditionally used to treat a range of conditions from colds through to skin disorders, the kernels were crushed to make skin cream. Aromatic wood from Quandong trees were also highly prized and traditionally used in smoking ceremonies.
