Delicious Edible Native Plants
Did you know that most of the edibles we grow in our gardens today were originally imported from overseas? With Tucker Bush edible natives, you can enjoy a backyard full of unique and delicious bush tucker fruits, roots, nuts, seeds and leaves from plants naturally designed for our climate and soil.
A Truly Australian flavour
Bush food has sustained generations of traditional Australians for centuries, and today represents a rich and vibrant history in this country’s culture. The Tucker Bush range aims to introduce a truly Australian flavour to the modern suburban home, working with communities with unique stories to share.

On Saturday Breakfast with Christine Layton
Did you know Australia is home to thousands of edible native plants?
But if you have a veggie garden, I bet most of the food you grow is from plants that originally came from overseas…
Horticulturalist Mark Tucek has teamed up with local Noongar cultural guide Marissa Verma to bring bush tucker gardens to local Perth schools.
They talk us through the native Australian edible plants that can thrive in your garden, and some of the culture and history behind them.
