Our Pink form of Khat, originally known as Vienna White, was sourced directly from Planthelper, a SAB forum member and well known plant breeder. Planthelper called the plant Vienna White as it came from the university botanical gardens in Vienna. This strain had originated from Yemen.

We didn't agree with the name Vienna White as we felt the name 'White' was misleading due to the plant actually having Pink stems. We therefore changed the 'Vienna White' form plant to Catha edulis f. 'Pink'.

The species originates from East Africa, Ethiopia, and the Arabian Peninsula, where it is commonly known as Khat. There are hundreds of different strains.

Among communities from the areas where the plant is native, khat has a history as a social custom dating back thousands of years. It contains the alkaloid cathinone, a stimulant.

Khat is an erect, evergreen, glabrous tree that grows up to 25m in height.

Catha edulis is an arid species so only water as needed. It does not like having its roots kept wet so ensuring your soil and/or pot allows for good drainage. Introduce to increasing sun light gradually as too much summer sun too early can be damaging. However, once adapted this species prefers full sun. It is frost intolerant.

Common name: Kat; Qat; Ghat; Chat; Bushman's Tea; Arabian-Tea; Cat; Quat; Miraa.
