Seagrape belongs to a small genus of woody, low growing shrubs from subtropical to tropical regions from southern North America to South America and usually occurs in the vicinity of the sea. Coccoloba uvifera is the only species with edible, cherry-sized fruits. These will turn violet with maturity and have a transparent, juicy, slightly sweet fruit pulp. Fruits are used to make marmelades in the Caribbean region. The seagrape makes large oval leaves and is easily grown in any humus rich, very well drained soil in full sun throughout the year. In winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 15°C.
Sow large seeds flat at a minimum of some 20°C in any humus rich, very well drained soil in a sunny spot. Seeds will germinate erratically in some one to four months.
