Forest Num-Num Overview
This tree-like shrub is found in most parts of South Africa, but grows particularly well in coastal areas. It is a beautiful ornamental garden feature as it bares pleasantly sweet smelling white flowers. The small red berries can be eaten raw and fresh or used to make deliciously sweet jellies and jams. Beware of the large thorns that are carried on the ends of the branches. This is a common feature plant. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Western Cape.
