 Coccoloba uvifera
Family: Polygonaceae
Sea grape
Origin: Tropical and sub-tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Sea Grape is now found growing wild along many seashores and is also used as an ornamental in gardens subjected to salty winds and drought. It has stiff, rounded platter-like leaves shading from yellowish to olive green with prominent veins. The flowers are inconspicuous but the long clusters of berry-like fruit which follow are striking and give the tree its popular name. Somewhat acid in taste, the fruit can be used to make jelly. Other members of the genus have even larger leaves and make attractive ornamental plants when grown in a glasshouse. Coccoloba prefers full sun. Pruning improves the shape when it is used in a garden landscape. It is both flood and drought tolerant.

I brought sea grapes tree from hear, it looked very cute and was exactly my image...but it never came into bud (i even thought its artificial? )and now it's dieing... It placed under the sun(morning sun) and keep watering once a week. (or when the soil looks dry)
What was wrong with it?! I'm so sad.

Sea grape has 'grapes' only on female trees. The fruit is delicious when ripe and can be eaten out of hand.A male tree is also needed nearby for the female tree to make fruits. You can only differentiate male and female trees when they flower.

I recently brought back seedlings from the sea grape tree from the Virgin Islands. I need to know how to plant them and in what kind of soil. Any info will help. Thanks B Day
