“Living to Learn”: Yesterday I came across a website that is “A Dictionary of Australian Words and their Meanings”. Being Australian I have heard a lot of them, but I still came across a lot that I had never seem before.
“Quandong” - Aboriginal name for a tree with small bluish-red fruit.
The Desert Quandong is a small tree or shrub found in the arid zones of Australia. The tree has paired leaves about 3 - 9 cm long. The fruits are shiny red and sometimes yellow 2 - 3 cm in diameter. The Desert Quandong grows in woodlands on sandy and stony soils. In the northern territory the Desert Quandong is becoming scarce most likely as a result of camel grazing.
