COMMON PINK SORREL

The Common Pink Sorrel (Oxalis semiloba) is widespread in grassland through eastern South Africa and in tropical Africa. As children we would often eat the rather tart tasting leaves – we called them yum-yums then – either on their own or sometimes even on a sandwich. These plants grow in gardens as well as in the veld.
