Landolphia kirkii (known as sand apricot-vine, rubber vine or Kirk's landolphia) is a species of liana from the family Apocynaceae that can be found in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa.
The fruit and fruit juice are used as medicine. Apricot is used for asthma, constipation, infertility, vaginal infections, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. In manufacturing, apricot oil is used in cosmetics. It can also be enjoyed in various fresh foods such as salads.
