Description

Terminalia petiolaris is commonly known as blackberry tree or billygoat plum, or marool in the local Bardi language. Combretaceae family. It is endemic to the coast of the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia. It grows as a small, deciduous tree up to 15 m in height with rough, grey bark. It produces strongly scented, cream-white flowers from February to May, and November to December. It has edible fruits, purple when ripe (from Wikipedia).

We have probably achieved a world first by grafting Terminalina ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum/Gubinge) to a Terminalia petiolaris petiolaris root stock. The species are closely related and the graft union is highly successful. The grafted plant shows a super growth rate in our subtropical environment as opposed to on its own roots. This may overcome the problem of not being able to grow Kakadu Plum commercially or succesfully outside of the tropics.
