aloe ferox

  • See also aloe vera.
  • The aloe ferox plant looks a bit like an aloe vera plant stuck on the top of a long stem.
  • It is indigenous to South Africa, and can be grown in a dry tropical environment.
  • Aloe ferox yeilds both bitter aloes and non-bitter gel.
  • There is a place in Hungary that grows this plant and is selling the seeds online. It would be an interesting thing to try, but I expect that it's more of a novelty in our wet climate!
