Abstract

The stone fruit industry in Western Australia produces up to 250,000 bushels of fruit per annum. The crop is disposed of mainly as fresh fruit on the local market, but during the last few years a useful outlet for certain varieties of plums has developed in Singapore which imports about 12,000 bushels each year. Stone fruits are not dried commercially and processing is confined mainly to the use of surplus fruit for jam making.
