Strychnos spinosa

An indigenous tree to tropical and subtropical Africa which is also known as a Monkey orange, klapper, morapa, umKwakwa, Nsala, muramba and Umhlali.

The flesh has a sweet sour taste and has a jelly-like consistency which can be eaten raw, juiced, made into jams and even into wine. The seeds are enclosed in the flesh and are said to be poisonous.

The Natal orange is adaptable to a range of soils and is drought tolerant. The bark is corky and flaky and the branches have spines.
