The Bush coconut or bloodwood apple, is an Australian bush tucker food, often eaten by Aborigines of Central Australia. The bush coconut is, in fact, a combination of plant and animal: an adult pores female scale insect, lives in a gall induced on a bloodwood eucalypt. It is in the size of an apple with a rough exterior, a small grub can be found inside after breaking the fruit open and is usually eaten. The white flesh is also eaten.

Audrey Martin Napanangka is a very good artist. She belongs to Yuendumu group of artists.  She beautifully depicted the bush coconut plants in a decorative manner. The best time to look for bush onion around April/May to pickup. Audrey Martin Napanangka was born in Yuendumu where bush coconuts grow abundantly.
