Kei-appel Tomato Chutney

South Africa is famous for kei-apples or Kei-appel and Kei Apple Tomato Chutney is a sort of combination pickle and preserve that goes well with grilled meats.


Dovyalis caffra or Kei apple is a spiny evergreen fruit tree whose common names are Kei appel in the Afrikaans language, umqokolo in Zulu, amaqokolo in Ndebele the Wild apricot, or Dingaan’s apricot to name a few. It is native to the Kei River area of Namibia and abundant in the wild around the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
