Diospyros humilis, commonly named Queensland Ebony, is a small eastern Australian tree found throughout Queensland and extending into Northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory. The plant is most commonly found in coastal and semi-arid zones in vine scrubs, brigalow woodlands and other locales with infrequent fire.
The plant grows as a small tree or shrub, with stiff, glossy, discolorous leaves. Fruit are oval and bright yellow, orange when ripe.
The timber is prized for woodturning and fine cabinet work.
