Natal Plum Tree (carissa macrocarpa)

Intensely night fragrant, snowy white flowers bloom for months on the low shrub. Pollinated flowers turn into delicious orbs of wonderful vitamin packed goodness. Rich in vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus these little guys are not just tasty but good for you. Pick and enjoy when fully ripe and bright red, but be cautious as the small diameter branches have sharp double thorns. How can you not grow them, they smell good, produce edible fruit and with the forked thorns on the stems, make a fantastic security hedge. Word of warning all parts of the plant are toxic EXCEPT the ripe fruit.
