Did you know? The humble ant madeRooibos cultivation possible Before the 1930s, Rooibos farms did not exist. The reason for this was that Rooibos cultivation was a challenge due to the tiny-sized seeds that were hard to find. Rooibos seeds are housed in small pods on the plant. Once ripe, the pod bursts open and the seeds are flung in all directions. A Russian settler of South Africa, Benjamin Ginsberg, tried to cultivate Rooibos in the 1930s, but the Khoisan people he employed to collect the seeds for him, only managed to find a few. But, one day an old Khoisan woman brought him a matchbox full of seeds… Intrigued, he wanted to know her secret and she soon revealed it by taking him to an ants’ nest. The observant woman one day noticed an ant dragging a Rooibos seed to its nest. On inspection she discovered an ant granary full of seeds! Due to this discovery, the possibility of cultivating Rooibos became real. Today a special sifting technique is used to collect seeds, which means that the ants supplies stay safely tucked away in their nests.
