15 October 2012 - Quandongs

 
Quandongs (Santalum acuminatum) are a native Australian bush food,
a tart fruit with interestingly textured kernal.
The dark ones in this photo still have the dried fruit around the kernal,
the light ones are the bare kernals.
 
You can read all about them in the government's fact sheet
 
These are destined to restore native bushland habitat, not to be used as food.
