Davidson Plums can be sliced thinly and sprinkled with some sugar, chilli powder or Celtic Sea Salt as a healthy snack. The fruits can also be macerated or pressed to make marinades, glazes, and dressings, cooked into jams, jellies and syrups, or pureed into sauces to serve with roasted meat. Davidson Plums have a versatile flavour that can be incorporated into sweet or savoury or dishes, and the fruit’s ruby-coloured flesh imparts a dramatic hue to sauces.

Davidson Plum... Growing Wild... Organic & Clean
Davidson Plum... Closing Thoughts
Belonging to the Cunoniaceae family, Davidson Plums (Davidsonia jerseyana) are ancient Australian fruits. The sour and tart fruits grow along the trunk or at the top of tropical trees, depending on the cultivar, and traditionally they have been a nutritional food source for Indigenous Peoples across the Australian continent. Historically, Davidson Plum is a wild, foraged fruit. The fruits can be collected easily as the ripe plums naturally fall off the tree. Due to the rise of industrialisation, the majority of Davidson Plum’s habitat was destroyed (on the brink of extinction). During the 1990s, the fruits were selected for commercial production. Davidsonia pruriens and jerseyana are the 2 major species commercially grown in Australia, recently the fruits have experienced increasing popularity due to the rise of bush foods in culinary dishes.
Davidson Plums provide a rich source of anthocyanins that are mostly found in the fruit’s pigmented skin. Like Antioxidants, Anthocyanins decrease inflammatory conditions and protect the cells from free radical damage. They have 100 times the Vitamin C found in oranges which strengthen the immune system. They contain potassium to balance the fluid levels within our body, and provide Zinc, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin E and Copper. In addition to minerals and vitamins, there’s Lutein present in Davidson Plum, a carotenoid that helps in maintaining eye health. During Australia’s summer season, Davidson Plums are only available for a few weeks. In general, Davidson Plums appear between December and January. Ancient Purity is proud to import the fruit’s freeze-dried powder making it possible for health enthusiasts to enjoy Davidson Plum year-round. The fruit powder contains all the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals. Powdered Davidson Plums can be mixed into vigorous smoothies, yogurt, puddings, or baked goods. Their robust spectrum of antioxidants makes Davidson Plum a superfood that should be in everybody’s diet. We make sure you can enjoy the benefits of adding Davidson Plum Powder to your daily routines!
