Terminalia ferdinandiana, or Kakadu, is a tree native from Australia. It bears small green fruits (2-3 cm) called plums, which resemble miniature pears, each containing 1 kernel/stone. All parts of the Kakadu tree have always been valued by Aboriginal people both for the plums, eaten fresh, as bush food and, for the barks and leaves used in traditional medicine.
Recent research has found that Kakadu plums (the fruit) have record concentrations in vitamin C, remarkably interesting nutritional values, and powerful health beneficial properties: Kakadu plum oil is one the most valued source of gallic and ellagic acids, 2 highly antioxidant natural acids found mostly in fruits and berries such as raspberries and blackberries, but also in Witch Hazel, Tea leaves, Oak bark, and Pomegranate skin.
