Description of the plant

Between plum and apricot, an overlooked exotic fruit tree that we love!

Resistant to small frosts, very productive, it gives tasty orange berries with a velvety skin and texture reminiscent of apricots and whose aromas are similar to plum. Its crimson red pulp is tangy and juicy, rich in vitamin C. A world of recipes opens up to you! Juices, fruit salads, jams, jellies, and even chutneys with its still green fruits which are easily preserved in vinegar ...

And our Caffre Apple, or Apple of Kei, knows how to defend itself with its long thorns present on its twigs!

So, bush or defensive hedge, a hardy tropical fruit tree to discover!

Also known as : Aberia caffra, Molthono, Kau apple, Umkokola,…
