By using radioactive carbon, the researchers found that glucose moves from the myoporum host plant to the quandong trees, no doubt benefitting the quandongs, even though these can photosynthesise in their own right.
Quandong growers in New South Wales also say that fruit grown near white cedars, also a native species, sustain less insect damage, particularly from quandong moth.
They ran a series of experiments investigating the transfer of compounds from two host species, white cedar (Melia azaderach) and creeping boobialla (Myoporum parviflorum), to quandongs.
Next I was treated to a facial designed to deep cleanse, smooth and hydrate the skin followed by a Li'Tya paudi scalp massage with Quandong
hair mask which helps to ease the body of stress and tension.
(Santalum acuminatum): Quandongs
are widespread in arid areas of S.
Commonly used terms include: quandong (from Wiradhuri, southwestern New South Wales, guwandhaang); waratah (from Dharruk, Sydney region, warrada); mallee (probably from western Victoria or central New South Wales, mali); and karri (probably from Nyungar, southwestern Western Australia, karri).
1997 The quandong (Santalum acuminatum), Australian Bushfoods Magazine 1:14-15.
Dr Amani Ahmed and Dr Krystyna Johnson found that the quandong
has had the greatest amount of scientific attention, primarily from CSIRO Plant Industry in South Australia.
Other plants in the range include desert lime, lemon myrtle, Australian bush mint, anisata, mountain pepper, desert raisin and quandong
In addition, Table 1 gives a value for whole quandong which combines the values for fruit and kernel by assuming 70% of the weight to be fruit, 20% kernel and 10% the shell of the kernel (discarded).
Except for quandong kernels, those sources were not sufficiently rich in energy or protein to act as satisfactory sole staples and both energy and protein intakes from them became increasingly inadequate.
