A small tree… could this be Coccoloba uvifera?

– This is Coccoloba uvifera. Recently I came across this plant at NhaTrang in Vietnam also.

You can refer to the following link

– yes it is Coccoloba uvifera, only one tree in Rani baug that too very small, its near the exotic bird cage, just right hand side of the main gate..


Coccoloba uvifera:
Coccoloba uvifera was seen in Flowering and fruiting stage at Sagar Upvan (Colaba, Mumbai). (Date/Time: 22-05-2011/ 08:00AM).



Trees of Lalbagh, Bangalore – Coccoloba uvifera – Sea Grape Tree:
Sea Grape is a sprawling bush or small tree that is found near sea beaches throughout tropical America.
It reaches a maximum height of 8 m, but usually just a little more than 2 m tall.
It has large, round, leathery leaves, up to 25 cm across, with a red primary vein.
The fragrant white flowers are very small and borne on 6-10 in spikes.
The bark is smooth and yellowish.
In late summer female trees bear purplish fruit, about 2 cm in diameter, in large grape-like clusters. The fruit is fleshy with a hard stone.
The fruits are edible raw and are made into “seaside jelly” or wine. In the West Indies, they boil the wood to yield a red dye. Wood from larger trees is prized for cabinet work.

Any Coccoloba sp.?

Thanks, …
It may be same coccoloba uvifera which I posted in the thread, but was not sure.

Coccoloba pubescens. Wait for the fruits and check the characters before confirmation.

coccoloba uvifera
Family: Polygonaceae
Sea grape 

Agree with …  id.
I have photographed the same tree in Lalbagh with fruits.
Also seen at Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai.

On second thought I feel it is coccoloba uvifera only


Some Ficus for ID : Attachments (2). 3 posts by 3 authors.

can the experts help me identify this Ficus (probably)?
My guess is – Ficus petiolaris
Location – Chandigarh
habit – Tree
Leaves – closely placed like those of Ficus lyrata however, in overall appearance it is nowhere even close to compact form of Ficus lyrata.
fruits – not seen.
the veins are always with this coloration.

This could also be the Sea Grape tree [Coccoloba uvifera].
