The article reports that the Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Center (CRC) is investing in a partnership with remote Aboriginal communities, including Titjikala, through an innovative business development in Australia. Such business opportunity includes bush tomatoes, since they are sold globally because they are considered the main ingredient of a wide variety of chutneys, sauces, and spice mixes. A large-scale horticulture research trial with bush tomatoes have been conducted to determine whether the bush has the potential to grow commercially in Australian desert. The research will involve analysis of the cost, commercial returns of bush tomatoes, and the determination of the best production systems and propagation methods.
