This Dreaming story refers to the Wild Plum fruit, which are picked when they have been dried by the sun. They can then be ground up with added water to make a paste. Traditionally women would gather this fruit and squeeze the juice into food carriers to drink.

The ripe black plums would also be used as paint, for body decoration and ground painting. In the past people would apply the juice to their skin to make themselves darker. The Wild plums are also eaten by the possums.
