Sea Grape is Coccoloba uvifera, a tree native to Florida. It forms long clusters of grape-like fruit with an acidic flavor. The sea grape is often used as a landscape tree near beaches and waterways because it adapts well to sandy soil. It is hardy to about 30F and is often grown as a shrub or hedge along property lines, and pruned to about 6' in height. It can also grow into a 30' tree. The fruit is edible. Sea Grape grows best in full sunshine and the evergreen leaves have red veins, which makes it attractive year around. Best wishes with your Sea Grape tree.
