Food of South Africa

South Africa has many climates, which means we can grow lots of different types of crops and food.


South Africans eat some strange things that are delicious and healthy. In Limpopo, lots of people love mopane worms, which are big caterpillars. They eat them dried or fried as a crunchy snack. Many say they taste just like prawns.

Free State, North West & Mpumalanga

The North West, Free State and Mpumalanga are all suitable for growing maize, or mealies, which can be cooked and eaten as putu (say poo-too), a kind of porridge.

Atlantic Ocean

The cold Atlantic Ocean on the west coast gives us salt, which is important for storing and preserving food.

Western Cape & Free State

Wheat, which is ground into flour for bread, cakes and biscuits, is grown all over South Africa, particularly in the Western Cape and Free State.

Western Cape

The hot and dry summers of the Western Cape give it a Mediterranean (say meh-duh-teh-ray-nee-en) climate that is good for growing grapes, oranges, olives, lemons and apples.

KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga & Limpopo

KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and parts of the Eastern Cape are hot and wet and have a tropical climate. Bananas, avocado pears, litchis, guavas, mangos, spanspek, granadillas and nuts grow well here.

Eastern Cape

Pineapples are grown in the Eastern Cape. There is a three-storey building in the shape of a pineapple in the town of Bathurst!

Indian Ocean

The warm Indian Ocean on the east coast gives us lots of sardines, a very small fish that is packed with nutrients.
