Fockea edulis, native to Namibia, South Africa, is a caudiciform plant with twisted tuberous roots and thin branches that climb on any available support. The tuber is grey with wart-like tubercles and grows up to two feet in diameter. The branches are up to 13 feet. The leaves are green, oval, and up to one inch long. It will lose some leaves in the winter but rarely goes completely leafless. The flowers are whitish-green, up to 0.6 inches across and usually appear in the summer. Grow in well-drained soil. Water during the growing season, from spring to fall, water regularly allowing the soil to dry in between watering. Reduce watering in the winter. Water only enough to prevent the shriveling of the tuber.
*****Fockeas are known as food plant, but the tuber has milky sap, which is said to be poisonous. Avoid contact with skin or eyes, and keep away from children and pets.
