Draft Management Plan for Kakadu Plum
The Northern Territory Government invites you to comment on the first ever draft management program for Terminalia ferdinandiana, known more commonly as Kakadu Plum.
Aboriginal people have a long history of medicinal and customary use of Kakadu Plum, a small to medium sized tree endemic to the monsoonal tropics of northern Australia, which is becoming increasingly commercialised due to its extraordinary health benefits.
The tree is well known for having high levels of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and is also documented as having high levels of Ellagic Acid, which has anti-oxidant values; making it an attractive natural ingredient for its nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, anti-microbial and preservative values.
The document has been prepared in partnership with Charles Darwin University and EcOz Environmental consulting.
