The native peach, a member of the sandalwood family, probably has more uses than we can think off. It can be used to make juice, fruit tarts and pies or eaten raw. It has a unique sweet and tangy taste. Enjoy it fresh, stewed or in a smoothie.
Aborigines also use the paste of the fruit to cure sore gums and toothache. Quandong trees grow wild throughout the arid regions of Australia, and cultivated commercially in the far west of NSW.
