Acacia mellifera is a very thorny shrub or small tree with a rounded or spreading flat crown, occurring in bushveld and semidesert areas. The bark varies from light to dark grey and is longitudinally fissured; these fissures are generally darker. Thorns occur in pairs at nodes which are spaced at intervals of 5–15 mm. The thorns are hooked and blackish.
