It is mainly grown in the Caribbean, Africa and in Madagascar. You do not have to travel that far to enjoy this plant because you can buy it as a houseplant in the trade. The name Aloe is probably "allal" a Hebrew / Greek word meaning "bitter matter". In South Africa the genus Aloe is called "Aalwijn", which means as much as bitter juice. It may therefore be clear that the juice of the Aloes is bitter.
