Bush tomato (also known as Desert Raisins, Kutjera, akatyerr, yakajirri) is a small fruit of the plant Solanum centrale that grows in arid regions of Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia and is picked when it has been sun dried naturally. It has a savoury raisin/caramel spicy taste. It is great to put a distinctive flavour into your casseroles, relishes, curries, breads, dukkah, crumb mix and salsas. Aboriginal groups of the arid regions used bush tomatoes as an important food source.

Bush tomatoes contain high levels of iron, folate, potassium and selenium and have a high potassium to sodium ratio of 483. Increasing potassium in the diet helps the kidneys to retain less sodium which helps lower blood pressure. Bush tomatoes also contain zinc, magnesium and calcium. Fresh bush tomatoes contain a lot of Vitamin C but once they are dried, there is little Vitamin C in them.

Selenium is necessary for antioxidant enzymes to function and plays an important role in thyroid hormone metabolism and production. It acts as an antioxidant helping  to prevent damage to cells caused by free radicals.
