- unidentified, cf. Fockea angustifolia, water root kambroo -
The ‡habab is a large, white, fleshy tuber that was profoundly important to the Hai||om, as it was an important source of water, especially during times when no surface water was available. The tubers were dug out with a digging stick; this could be a time-consuming task, as they often grow rather deep. The shape of the tubers varies greatly. The water could be squeezed out and used for cooking purposes.
