Bush Tomato

Bush Tomato

Bush Tomato (Solanum centrale), also known by its Aboriginal name akudjura, is a small, round fruit with a strong flavour and smell. Initially distinctively raisin or caramel in flavour, bush tomato has a strong spicy aftertaste. Rich in antioxidants and minerals, including selenium, bush tomato is considered one of the most important of all the Central Australian plant foods.

Description

A fast-growing shrub native to the very arid desert regions of central Australia, the bush tomato is closely related to the regular garden tomato. The small, round fruit turns from green to yellow as it ripens, and then from yellow to red as it is sun-dried on the bush. While the mature yellow fruit can be eaten fresh, bush tomato is usually used in its dried form. More than 80 per cent of harvesting is done by hand by Aboriginal wild harvesters.

Ideal for chutneys and salsas, in curry and on red meat, bush tomato is also used in its ground form in bread mixes, herb blends, pasta, relishes, dressings, sauces and dukkah.

Bush tomato is one of the few native foods containing selenium, a rare mineral which plays a key role in the metabolism. Rich in antioxidants, far outshining the renowned blueberry, bush tomato is also rich in iron, vitamin E, folate, zinc, magnesium and calcium, and has a high potassium to sodium ratio.

The product itself is lovely and very good but the service was poor. I had to pay almost the same amount for the product for custom charges because the company indicated it was a gift not a purchase. if you are ordering from the UK, i advise you order elsewhere. Very disappointed and unhappy customer. will NEVER order from this company again

Known about this item and many other native foods but it has been sometimes difficult to obtain. My recent purchase was a fortunate timing to buy and I don't regret the delay. The bush tomato has a lovely and very different flavor that goes so well both with conventional foods like meat, chicken and vegetarian dishes, either as a sole native addition or when partnered by other wonderful bush additives. I am salivating at the potential for numerous experiments of cooking with these marvels.
