EARTH DAY 2009 - PICTURE OF MY COCOLOBA UVIFERA


For Earth Day I took a pictures of my Cocoloba Uvifera I grew from seed scavenged at the beach.
This shrub is a native to the Caribbean and Florida .
Its common name is the SEA GRAPE.
It provides habitat for the birds and shades my ac unit from the morning sun.
One can use the grapes produced to make jelly or ferment them to make wine. Native birds love to eat them.
In the three years that my Sea Grapes have grown(two plants), mine have not produced any fruit (grapes). I read that only the female plant produces fruit and a male plant has to be present.
So I figure my two bushes are both female with no male or both male with no female. I plan to start some more beside these to get some grape production going on.
Plants native to your area are the way to go especially on EARTH DAY!!! ...sanddune...
