Pappea capensis.

Botanical name:

Pappea capensis Eckl. & Zeyh. Sapindaceae. Wild Plum.

South Africa. The fruit is edible. A vinous beverage and a vinegar are prepared from it, and an edible, though slightly purgative, oil is expressed from its seeds. Mueller says the fruit is the size of a cherry, savory and edible.
