Western Australia is well situated geographically to supply the demand for plums on the Singapore market and over the past 10 years, a substantial export trade has been developed. Growers have found this outlet profitable, and increased plantings of suitable varieties have been made. During the 1957 season—a record export year—almost 40,000 boxes were shipped.
