  1. Beautifully presented botanical specimen Jivko. The red against the lime green, lovely. These I believe are native to South Africa? Here in Australia we have a native within the same family Aizoaceae, commonly known (I still have to find out why!) as pig face. We can eat the fruit fresh or dried and the salty leaves are also edible. Posted 2 years ago
    1. Thank you, Ruth. I don't know if this one is edible, but is a real beaty! Posted 2 years ago
