Sea grapes

(Coccoloba Uvifera)

     This tree is resistant to both wind and salt. When found along the exposed coastline, it typically takes on a shrub-like appearance but when grown in more protected areas, it can attain heights of 6 to 8 meters. Its round, waxy leaves can be 20 cm. long. Its fruit, edible albeit acidic, is found in clusters. When mature, the grapes become red-violet in color.
