Boscia albutrunca is a small tree that occurs in the drier parts of South Africa and prefers a well-drained, poor soil. It is extremely slow -growing from seed and does not transplant easily. Quite often, the trunk is contorted and coupled with the fine foliage, make this tree very attractive. If you have one, cherish it!
Boscia albutrunca is steeped in folklore. The roots have been used as a coffee substitute and the green seeds pickled and used as a relish.
