    Hmm!
    Animal, vegetable or mineral?
    Just checking that you are not REALLY teasing us.
    Can I rule out animal (and mineral)?

    Yes, we have the family; is it really the only family with tribes?

    New picture.

    Hey, I think that's a succulent I used to have that I called watermelon pickle because of its markings! Gets green leaves, thickish, arrowhead shaped, and smell like cucumber?

    Excellent Tyrlych:
    Tribe: senecioneae as pointed out by Pierrot;
    genus: kleinia;
    species: neriifolia.

    It is native endemic to the Canary Islands and it used to be in the genus Senecio. Common Spanish name 'Verode'. Very drought resistant and can take down to 0°C. In my garden is in a pot and goes into a heated greenhouse when hard frosts are forecast. Here is a picture with leaves, which is its most common appearance ;o)).

    Cool plant. How big does it get, on the Canaries?

    Came across this one late, I knew what it was too, honest. I used to have it and recognised the markings below the leaf attachment points. I still have S. articulatus which of course also has these markings.

    The height in the Canaries is up to 5-6ft (1.5-1.8m).

    It could actually grow up to 3 m in some 'barrancos' (see links below).
    Steve , are you saying you grow it in your place?, what do you do in the winter?
