This fact sheet is part of a 13-part native food series.

Kakadu plum is the most common name for this fruit, although it is found from the Kimberley to Darwin and in Queensland. Other names, depending on location, include gubinge, gabiny, kabiny, mardorr, murunga, bush plum, billygoat plum and salty plum.

The pale olive-green, ovoid fruit has a central wooden stone, similar to an immature olive, and is fibrous with a tart and bitter taste.
