Yuendumu Bush Tomato in rust



Yuendumu Bush Tomato in rust is a design by Australian Aboriginal artist Audrey Napanangka for M&S Textiles

Bush Tomato or wild tomato plant is usually waxy looking. It grows in the creek area in Northern Territory. The ripe fruits have a strong fragrance which may be smelled from long distances. A single plant produces abundant delicious fruit which are a rich source of potassium and vitamin C. But you need to be careful as there are more than 100 varieties of bush tomatoes, with only a handful being edible. Some may be poisonous or may cause sickness.

Harvesters normally collect sundried fruits of the small bushes in the late summer and early winter. Audrey Napanangka?s artwork is vivid and strong. Design shows women(u) are sitting around waterhole with already picked up fruits on the coolaman and digging sticks.
