Houhere (Hoheria populnea)

I like Houhere because it tastes like watermelon. The leaves not so much - they have a crunchy taste like carrots or cucumber but if you are lucky enough to have some of that fabulous bark boiled up. Yes!! Watermelon city baby!

Watermelon, as we all know is great for any women's issues around that time of the moon, cramps and any other nasties which women can be prone to. It can also be used for male and female gut issues, Irritable Bowel and reflux.

I personally only drink it around the summer months and only if I can get the bark but use it all the time around itchy, irritable eyes as an eye wash.
