Bush tomato or the wild tomato plant is usually waxy looking. It grows in the creek area in the Northern Territory. The ripe fruits have a strong fragrance which may be smelled from long distances. A single plant produces many fruits. These fruits are tasty. Bush tomato is rich in sources of potassium and vitamin C. There are more than 100 varieties of bush tomatoes, but only a handful are edible. Some may be poisonous or may cause sickness. Harvesters normally collect sun-dried fruits of the small bushes in the late summer and early winter. Audrey Napanangka's design shows women(u) are sitting around the waterhole with already picked up fruits on the coolaman (special wooden toy) and digging sticks.
