Typically, the Ooray fruit form in bundles growing from the branches unlike its related species which form fruit on the main tree trunk. It is rare to see Ooray fruit from the trunk.
Ooray is a local Aboriginal name from far north Queensland for Davidsonia pruriens. This beautiful slender tree of the rainforest, with its fragile pinky red new growth and green saw-toothed mature leaves, produces a wonderous purple fruit with vivid red flesh.
The juicy vibrant flesh has a neat tart flavour. Prepared in the proper way, this fruit has the most refreshing taste on the palate and provides a great pick-me-up at any time of the day. Little wonder that Ooray has been a popular fruit for many thousands of years.
The Ooray is one of three species in the genus Davidsonia and is a native of the nothern tropical rainforests of Queensland. The other two species, Davidsonia jerseyana, and Davidsonia johnsonii, grow in temperate regions and are more commonly referred to as Davidson or Davidson’s plum.
