Hog Plum is a native plant in Florida found in scrub land or other dry areas. In Hundred Acre Hollows, the Hog Plums are on the tops of the berms. They can reach 10 feet tall, but the ones here are about 2 ½ to 3 feet tall now. They are thorny and are important to people and animals. The yellow fruit is about the size of a ping pong ball. It can be sweet or bitter. It’s an important fruit for birds, gopher tortoises, and other animals. The fruit can be used to make jams, and in South Africa, it is used to make beer!
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit acting as caretakers to 114 acres of land in Brevard County. Our vision is to use this land to discover, study, and teach about Florida’s plants and animals to help sustain and enrich lives.
