    Altezza della pianta: 40-50cm cm
    Beautiful shrub with a rounded shape with strongly ramified foliage, evergreen, with fleshy, waxy and shiny leaves, and branches equipped with robust thorns. In our climates it can grow up to 2-3 m in height, in South Africa it is used to create impenetrable hedges. From March to October it produces white star-shaped flowers, much appreciated by butterflies and bees. The scent is sweet and inebriating, followed by the production of fruits, small red-purple spheres, edible, with a sweet flavour, similar to small plums, which, according to popular opinion, are aphrodisiacs.
