Yuendumu Bush Tomato Pink

The bush tomato, or wild tomato plant, is usually waxy looking. It
grows in creek areas in the Northern Territory. The ripe fruits have a
strong fragrance which my be smelled from long distances. A single plant
produces many fruits, rich in potassium and vitamin C. There are more
than 100 varieties of bush tomato, but only a handful of them are
edible. Some may even be poisonous or may cause sickness. Harvesters
normally collect sun-dried fruits of the small bushes late summer and
early winter.

The design shows women sitting around a waterhole with already picked fruits in the coolamon (basket) and digging sticks.
