I had to look at it because it looked like rhubarb, but when I looked closer, it seemed to be more like chard; however both are edible but one must be cooked. Thanks for the appetizer-- will be chewing on this leaf for a while #542749

Hi Mary, thanks for your comment. This is actually the underside of a Sea Grape tree leaf. They grow along the shore of salt water and the grapes are actually pretty good. I just liked the red running through the green. #3473524

Mary C. Legg 10/19/2006 2:10:01 PM

well, while you're paddling around down there, would you pick me some and send them over? if the leaves look edible, the fruit has to be better. can you make wine, jelly or syrup with them? even better. #3473550

Bill Foxworthy 10/19/2006 2:15:48 PM

I dont know about the leaves but the fruit is winding down now. I have never made jelly or anything but my Wife had a tree in her front yard when growing up. She loves the grapes. #3473571

Mary C. Legg 10/19/2006 2:22:59 PM

a sea grape that grows on a tree? now this is beginning to sound very interesting. I thought the Almighty screwed up when he made legless lizards, but a grape on a tree has to be noteworthy. I have to dig about in your gallery and see what else is interesting after this nice conversation.forgive my fingers--they're dyslexic and spastic. #3473600
