Wanakiji is a Warlpiri word used for Bush Tomato. Wanakiji are small fast-growing shrubs that fruit prolifically the year after fire or good rains. The fruit have been used as Bush tucker by central Australian Aboriginal people for many thousands of years. Bush Tomatoes have a very strong flavour and scent when ripe and fresh, so that one can actually smell a richly fruiting specimen from quite a distance.
