Looks like you're right. (Don't worry about the spelling :-)
It seems it's been re-classified.
Yup it does fruit, it's known as the Hottentot fig. In South Africa the fruit is dried and sold on the roadside. Makes a decent chutney, but not really everyones taste.... not mine anyway!
Loads growing down here in Cornwall, especially near seaside cliffs etc. it has become somewhat of a problem. Smaller alternative would be Lampranthus 'Purple' or 'Tresco'. They are all great for trailing down Cornish stone walls.
Thanks for the link Andrew but I'm not quite sure what the relevance is ?
