Birimbiri, Joongoon, Goorralgar (Bush Fruits) by Karen Morgan

These are bush fruits that we grew up collecting and eating. Different berries. The Goorralgar - it's a little white fruit, and it has a sweet taste. Very small round white fruit. We just eat it as a fruit. Joongoon - when people have sore stomach and diarrhoea, they have that. Some are dry and bitter, depending on which tree it’s picked from. It can also be boiled or cooked on coals.

The Birimbiri is sweet when it’s ripe; it’s a small, hard, round orange fruit. When they start to get ripe they swell up - they look like they glow. Bright orange red berries.

I remember sitting at the women’s group table and doing this design in August 2019, with my nan Violet Carter helping out with the language words.
