- Berchemia discolor, bird plum -
The‡huis is a medium-sized tree which occurs singly throughout Etosha. When ripe, the drupes (fleshy fruit) of this tree, which are a rich source of vitamin C, turn orange, and become sweet. Hai||om used to collect ‡huin (the drupes) in large quantities and dry them, which intensified their sweetness. They could be stored for many months, to be available when other fruit and berries had become scarce. ‡Huin are regarded as a delicacy; today, they are sometimes sold in small cups on the streets of Namibian towns.
