Hello,

When I moved into my house there was/is a very vigorous woody thick climbing vine. It has tendrils, immature green berry sized fruit that matures to blue.The leaves are ovate with serrated margins. It is all along our chain link fence, as well as growing and twining in and along a large ornamental pomegranate tree. It looks to be weighing it down. I've searched and searched with no answer. I would really appreciate somebody's help! I am including photos.

Hi carlysuko, Welcome! from me too!

To get an exact ID, it will really help to know what part of the country/world the plant is growing.

I agree. We need to know the country/state/city, etc. to obtain a good identification. Also, please take some photos of the leaves, close up front and back if possible.

I will hazard a guess, but it is only a guess:
Cissus antarctica?

Thumbs up I tip my hat to you.
If you have time, take a moment to complete your profile information. That way, everyone can know your location. It helps when asking for a plant identification. Thumbs up

If you are sure it is the correct identification...
our database has zero photos of the plant. You can earn some acorns for adding your photos.

Add one photo of the fruit, one photo of the leaves and one photo as the habitat and you will get credit in the form of acorns.
