Sea Grape

  • Regular price $39.99

The Coccoloba uvifera, AKA Sea Grape, grows along beaches in tropical areas of the Caribbean.

In the late summer, it puts forth a fruit that looks similar to a grape, which, when ripe, turns purple. Many enthusiasts love to feast on Sea Grape jam or jellies – or even eat the fruit straight from the tree.

Relatively wind resistant and shade tolerant, the Sea Grape is salt tolerant, which is why you’ll find it growing wild along the beaches.

These specimens are for in store pick up and are too large to ship.
