Quandong Peach

Aboriginal Mythology Fruit - Complex Oils Desert Tribe Medicine (Iron/Zinc/Protein)
Weight50g (1.76 oz.) Air Dried Fruit

Australia houses an abundance of native plants most of which we have never heard of. Unless you were born down under, chances are you have never heard of Quandong fruit trees. Quango Peach a weird name, an extraordinary flavour! These glossy, sweet peach plums are jam-packed with protein, iron, complex oils and zinc. While they can be eaten straight off the tree, we’re supplying as native dried fruit, to add to fruit salads, juices, desserts, chutney or cakes. Yummy! Traditionally a pivotal source of food for Indigenous Australians, this native fruit features abundantly in Aboriginal mythology throughout Australia’s deserts. Rich in protein, Vitamin C and other antioxidants, Quandongs were considered an ideal meat substitute, particularly during times when meat was scarce. Historically valued equally as a medicine and food, this tantalising big fruit is so appreciated by desert tribes that whether in season or not, it is difficult to locate a tree that doesn’t have a makeshift ladder propped up against the trunk to help with the fruit collection by adoring enthusiasts! This sweet dried fruit with a balancing slightly salty and sour aftertaste and a mild scent of dry lentils with some earthy fermented touches. You simply have to experience this powerhouse fruit! Add boiling (Pure) water to a cup for a delicious Fruit Tea.

Q: Can you tell me something about the history of Quandong Peach?

A: Quandong Peach was a significant source of protein, vitamin C, E, folate, magnesium, calcium, iron, rutin and zinc for the Indigenous Pitjantjatjara people, an Aboriginal tribe of the Central Australian desert for over 50,000 years and is still eaten by many of the people today. It’s a rich source of phenolic-based antioxidants, which boost the immune system and help protect against numerous diseases such as cardiovascular issues and Alzheimer’s. The fruits are made up of 25% protein and 70% complex oils. The kernels of the fruit were used by local tribes to create powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory pastes. Because of its high content of protein, the Pitjabtara men would consider these fruits a great substitute for meat. The leaves and bark from the trees would then be used mostly for medicinal purposes. Today Quandong Peach is also used for help reducing skin conditions and symptoms of rheumatism.

Q: What are this fruit's health-improving properties?

A: Contains twice the Vitamin C of an orange. A great source of vitamin E, folate, magnesium and calcium. A valuable vegan source of iron and zinc. A rich source of phenolic-based antioxidants. Contains rutin, a strong antioxidant that can help reduce the proliferation of free radicals. Rutin works with Vitamin C to strengthen capillaries, reduce dark circles under the eyes and strengthen the skin from the effects of ageing.
