Aloe?
by: Jacki

This looks to be a kind of Aloe, based on the description of the thorns on the leaves.

There are many different kinds, so this will involve some detective work on your part. You can see more on them here; Aloe.

I've never seen the fruit after the flower forms because my climate isn't warm enough for that. That will bear more investigation, both to really identify it, and to make sure they're edible! It's not advised to eat or even taste a plant part that you are not sure is safe for consumption.

These are in my yard
by: Mario

I have about six of these plants growing in my backyard. I have always wondered what they were. I cannot seem to find an answer anywhere. I live in Central Florida, right on a very Grassy Lake. These plants are growing in a cluster under a bunch of small oak trees. I would love to know what they are and if I can eat or use the fruits for anything

Not Aloe
by: Jacki

Mario, it doesn't sound like yours are Aloe. For one thing, Aloe generally wouldn't grow in the shade. Make sure you know what they are before you try to eat them!
