Sea grapes can be found all over South Florida; the leaves are tough and thick but have lovely unique shape. The fruit are edible and make good preserves--they are also popular with birds and squirrels. The tree is salt tolerant; we have often seen along the water's edge near bays and rivers. The white flowers are fragrant and very small. If you would like to know more about this plant follow the link below to download the full description.
