Dragon fruit from Indonesia

Consultation has concluded

We have finalised the risk analysis for fresh dragon fruit from Indonesia.

It is recommended that the import of dragon fruit from Indonesia be permitted provided it meets our biosecurity import conditions.

Seven quarantine pests associated with dragon fruit are present in Indonesia, and need risk management measures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. A range of measures are recommended to reduce the risk of these pests arriving in Australia via the dragon fruit pathway.

We released a draft report for fresh dragon fruit from Indonesia on 17 January 2018, for public consultation. The consultation period closed on 19 March 2018.

All submissions were considered in finalising the risk analysis.

You can read the final risk analysis report as well as our responses to stakeholder comments on the draft report.
