Pig Face Pink

PIG FACE PINK

Carpobrotus glaucescens
Member $7.95
Non-Member $9.95
A very low maintenance native plant used as a food source and medicinally by First Nations peoples. Pig Face, as it is popularly known, is also a versatile and hardy ground cover for poor soils and dry coastal climates, often used as a ground stabiliser. The ripe fruit tastes like a small salty apple, while the leaves can be used as a salt substitute in both cooked and raw foods. The leaves can also be used to treat skin burns or the juice can be extracted to form a mouth wash or throat gargle. Don’t forget the vibrant pink flowers, which pollinators love!
