The Illawarra Plum is native to sub-tropical eastern New South Wales and Queensland.  It is also known as Daalgaal  and Gidneywallum.

The vivid purple fruit has a plum/pine flavour which is primarily harvested in the wild.

The fruit contains appreciable quantities of sticky sugars which are hugely beneficial to the gastrointestinal tract.  The antioxidant level is seven times that of blueberries.
