  • Fockea edulis is a perennial, climbing succulent that can develop into a large, woody vine. It often produces a caudex, which is a large, tuberous underground stem. The caudex can become quite massive and is one of the distinctive features of the plant.
    The caudex of Fockea edulis is one of its most interesting features. It can reach significant sizes and has a unique appearance, often resembling a large, gnarled potato or tuber. The caudex serves as a water storage organ, allowing the plant to survive prolonged periods of drought.
    In its native regions, Fockea edulis has been used traditionally for various purposes. The caudex is edible and has been consumed by indigenous people during times of food scarcity. Additionally, parts of the plant have been used for medicinal purposes.
