Coccoloba uvifera (Seagrape)

Heralding from the shores of tropical America and the Caribbean Seagrape holds a fondness for coastal beaches. Its domain stretches from Florida to as far south as Peru. The Seagrape often exhibits a sprawling growth habit, particularly when it finds itself near the coast. In these coastal habitats, the robust winds and nutrient-poor, dry soil dictate a more restrained growth, manifesting as a large evergreen shrub. However, venture away from the coast, and the Seagrape transitions into a small to medium-sized tree, showcasing a remarkable level of adaptability to its environment. The edible fruit is mostly seed. Photographed in the department of Atlantico and Magdalena, Colombia.
