Abstract: This paper has collated information obtained from existing quandong (Santalum acuminatum) growers and literature on factors to consider when establishing a small quandong orchard. The quandong orchard was established on a grazing property in the semi-arid rangelands of NSW as a potential alternative source of income. It highlights that industry growers have and will continue to, depend on their own research for development. Individual seedlings rather than grafted genotypes have been used in this orchard. The orchard is designed to compare growth rates of quandong on a selection of semi-arid host species. The orchard could potentially be used as a source of genetic material for future breeding.
