It is highly unlikely that any other edible Australian native plant has created as much interest as the Native peach/Quandong, Santalum acuminatum. This plant is now embedded in Australian folklore and holds nostalgic memories for many people. This fully illustrated book follows its journey through prehistoric times, ancient Aboriginal history, botany, Australian land exploration, early settlers, arts and craft through farming the species and its uses as a popular cooking ingredient in modern Australia.
