This is my decade old aloe vera plant. Best way to harvest is from the bottom (oldest) leaf. Cut off the spikes, let the yellow sap drain from the leaf as the sap is very bitter. Good to soak the leaf in bucket of water to remove the sap better. Then scrap off the inside, chop to tiny pieces and enjoy with honey or ginger ale.
Young aloe vera pups with white freckles. These will be transplanted this weekend.
