The Veldt Grape is a curious plant which is belongs to both the succulent and the grape family. The foliage of this plant are very similar to that of the common grape vine, except the stems of this attractive variation has thick sausage shaped segments, typically with four ribs running the length of the stem. This succulent also produces delicate flowers and small red fruit. However, unlike normal delicious grapes, these are NOT edible, but always attractive to view.

Description

Veldt Grape

Botanical Name: Cissus quadrangularis

Common Names: Veldt Grape

The vines on a mature Veldt Grape plant can reach heights of 6 meters or more. When in bloom, spectacular racemes of petite yellow-green flowers are produced, followed by small fruit which will turn red when ripe.

When prepared properly this succulent has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years and even to this day can be found in many medical and dietary supplement ingredients.

This succulent is native to the tropical climates of Southern Asia and Africa where they thrive in a hot and humid habitat. This climate can be replicated in most Australian gardens by allowing the plant to dry out between deep watering and keeping drier in the winters.
