Description

Wild Peach

Kiggelaria africana L.

Common names: wild peach, wildeperske (Afr.), umKokoko (Xhosa), uMunwe (Zulu), Monepenepe (North Sotho), Lekgatsi (South Sotho), Muphatavhafu (Venda)

Wildlife

  • The woody fruits attract a host of seed-eating bird species.
  • Flowers lure butterflies, bees and insects.
  • Various caterpillar species feed on the foliage, and the beautiful Acraea horta butterfly breeds almost exclusively on the trees.
  • The caterpillars will in their turn lure insectivorous birds.

Medicinal:

  • The wild peach tree has a potent energy to assist with putting you in touch with your personal power.
  • The essence of this tree may foster courage, confidence and self-worth and may bring focus and clarity and balance indecision and procrastination.
  • Assist with accessing the spiritual courage to speak your truth in the face of intimidation or oppression.

Practical Uses

  • Makes a durable, good general-purpose timber.
  • A pink dye can also be extracted from it.
  • Creates a great canopy for shade.
