On a recent trip out to visit the artists from Utopia I photographed the native bush Tomato plant Solanum ellipticum.

Bush tomato plants are small shrubs whose growth is encouraged by fire and disturbance. The fruit of a number of species have been used as food sources by Aboriginal people in the Central Australia.

They have a very strong flavor and scent when ripe and fresh, so that one can actually smell a richly fruiting specimen from quite a distance
