The sea grape (Coccoloba uvifera), is an
inhabitant of the Caribbean Sea, and is not similar
to the other grapes in the world grown on the
climber trees or shrubs.
Sea grape got its name
from the clusters shaped like grapes which the plant
has. Bermuda, names these sea plants as bay-grape.
Spanish areas such as Puerto Rico name it as uva de
mar. Greek and the proper Latin name for it is berry
and pod. Sea grape plants are openly surrounded by
the sea coast from where they easily are approached
to salt water from the ocean or sea.
Sea grapes look like
evergreens with a good-looking, golden-brown woof
that tends to unwrap. These trees are about 15 to 21
feet in tallness, even capable of reaching up to 30
foot. sea grapes have got a pretty good growth rate.
They have crude, mainly
big leaves of going about up to 10 inches; rounded
in a circular manner around the stems. Color of the
vein which is viewing is usually reddish; where a
grownup leaf could also be red in color. They also
have got some flowers on the plant having a
pleasurable smell and are yellowish and a little
white in color small.
Real grapes look similar
to the sea grape fruits, where the immature ones are
green and the ripen ones are quite black. sea grapes flavor
is mostly bitter and thus cant be eaten freshly
picked; but later on they are quite much used in
jellies, jams, and custards. Such products could be
easily seen in grocery stores.
Besides eating such
fruits they also provide benefits to the medicine
areas, especially in areas of Mexico. Its juice
helps people to treat digestive problems and as well
as many other diseases. This plant is also named as
manzana and kiiche.
A there are a lot of
hasty winds blowing in the areas of sea grape
plants; they tend to grow very slowly and this which
makes the size of the sea grape plant grow to a limit.
