Kapitany, Attila

Succulents are a very important source of food and water for humans, animals and insects throughout history.  They are common in sandy or disturbed soils and some are weeds! Apart from their very attractive flowers, what other uses or value do these plants have?  Which ones are the most garden worthy?  Or on a chef’s menu?

There is an increasing interest in information about edible Australian plants of which a surprising number are considered succulent. This publication is not a recipe book or a guide to preparing or eating Australian succulents, rather only an introduction to those plants that are considered edible succulents.  The main aims here include helping with identification and increasing the appreciation, understanding and potential horticultural trials and further general use of these plants.
