Spekboom is mostly used as a shrub, but can grow into a small tree. To rural farmers Spekboom offers excellent grazing. One of our hardiest succulents, this all-rounder is also used as hedging, as ground cover in dry areas and can be massed to serve as a firebreak.
It makes an adorable bonsai, looks beautiful in a container, and is happy to grow as garden shrub or in rock gardens. The leaves are fully edible, slightly tart tasting, and packed with Vitamin C.
Our Babel restaurant chefs love to use it in salads, stews, preserves and as garnish.
