The Wongi Plum is found in coastal regions of the Torres Strait and Cape York area. The trees grow to about 6 metres in height and from a distance have a distinct silvery appearance. This is due to the oval shaped leaves being white or silver on the underside. The fruit appears from July to September, with some seasonal variation. When fully mature, the elongated fruit has a red or orange or wine colouring. (See the above example). Each fruit has a longish stem attached to it, and one or two long seeds inside.
The ripe plums may be eaten . . .
