Conkerberry grows in the north west of Queensland, and in the Northern Territory , it is a protected tree. Not easy to get or handle, because of holes up the central stems and the shortness of workable branches. The orange colour of Conkerberry makes it very attractive, it also has a creamy sapwood to add spice to the appearance. Australian Aboriginals have used its small edible purple/blue berry for food and medicineb. The bright orange heartwood is very fine bone-like in texture.
Because it is very fine and dense, it does not accept polymer filling or other stabilizing agents. Conkerberries are edible, but only when fully ripe; they have a sweet flavour, but the milky sap of this plant – and its unripe fruit – is poisonous.
