I tried to see some of the flora of Ethiopia. But i can't to find a research done on Aloe ( a plant which is bitter) or Ereat in amharic term. May be you wona be curiouse why you are intrested to know about Aloe. it is because i have an information about the herb which is industrial chemical herb most of the time used for cosmotic purpose. But it is still utilised and imported from Germany. If you have more information about the plant please pass me an information with the above address. Thank you.
