The shape of the small leaves of this interesting succulent somewhat resembles a pickle. Adding to the effect are all the little water vesicles with white bristly hairs that cover its cucumberish appendages. From the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Pickle Plant has cute light yellow flowers that appear off and on year round. Other names it goes by are Sugar Crystals and Pickle Cactus, even though it is not a Cactus. Pickle Plant is actually a type of Iceplant.
