It was healthy and fast growing plants

Natal Plum

These are found all over Los Angeles where they thrive. When I first moved to CA and walked by one of these hedges in full bloom and I thought it was a bush form of Jasmine because of its aroma and unknowingly tried to touch this thorned devil. LOL.

We have some that were planted around the time I was born - which means they're now more than 40 years old and growing strong! They've had minimal care for many years and still flower and fruit. I grew up happily eating them.

I have several of these plants growing in my garden. This is the first year we have had fruit. They are tough little plants and the fruit is delicious

Natal Plum

I found this plant growing in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens and it was in fruit in September. Ones I found on the ground fell into my mouth and turned out to be the most delicious flavour. They grow well there but seem to do best in filtered light.

Glossy green leaves, good plant for a tough position. Starry, gardenia-smelling flowers. Would make an excellent hedge.Update November 2013. In all it's time has only produced one or two fruits despite the fact there are several plants nearby.

This plant is certainly ornamental and the spines ensure it makes a good hedge. Unfortunately, I have never had fruit on my plants (now 3 y.o.) but I did read that hand pollination may be the key.

A favourite in it's native South Africa where this dense shrub is used as a hedge to keep out the unwanted. It has vicious thorns! Fruit is tangy. Makes great jams and sauces. Bullet proof when established. Pretty little flowers smell like gardenias.
