The Illawarra Plum, also known as the Plum pine is a tree native to the Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia. It is valued for both its ornamental qualities and its fruit, which is a rich source of vitamin C.
The fruits of the Illawarra Plum are edible and have a similar taste to plum but More mild. They can be eaten fresh, but they are also commonly used in jams, jellies, and sauces due to their high pectin content.
Growing and Care Instructions:
Illawarra Plum trees prefer a sunny or partially shaded position, as well as well-draining, slightly acidic soil. They are fairly hardy and can tolerate a range of conditions, including salt spray, wind, and frost once established. Regular watering, particularly during dry periods, will help ensure a good fruit yield. Pruning can help shape the tree and encourage a more compact growth habit.
The Illawarra Plum can grow to a height of around 5 to 15 meters depending on the growing conditions and care.
This unique tree not only provides aesthetic value but also offers delicious and nutritious fruits, making it a great addition to any garden or orchard.
