The green Lycium afrum fruit is mostly spherical, sometimes ovoid. The large, pointed sepals clutch the back end of the berry that is long-stalked.
Some of the leaf tips are pointed, others rounded while many leaves deviate from the linear by being oblanceolate to narrowly spathulate or spoon-shaped, wider near the tip. The leaf base tapers into its very short petiole.
Leaf dimensions are 10 mm to 25 mm long by 1 mm to 3 mm wide (Privett and Lutzeyer, 2010; Manning, 2007; Manning and Goldblatt, 1996; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; iNaturalist).
