Kei Apple Tree (dovyalis caffra)

ANTIOXIDANT RICH – Kei Apple contains 7 of the 9 essential amino acids required by the human body. These amazing tangy globes of nutrients make a great desert or snack and can even be transformed in to delicious jellies and syrups. The aromatic fruit is nearly round, 1 to 2 inches long, with bright-yellow, smooth downy, tough skin, and apricot-textured, juicy, tangy flesh. Kei Apple is a very spiny tree and with thorns 1 to 3 inches long and dark, shiny green leaves it is perfect for creating an impenetrable nature friendly hedge. Regular trimmings will keep it branching and these will mesh tightly for a spiny thick hedge. Left to grow untrimmed it often looses a majority of the sharp spines and will have longer, arching branches. Once established in the garden or container Caffra is salt and drought tolerant.
