Coccoloba uvifera of Zeedruif (Seagrape)

The Coccoloba uvifera, 'Seagrape' or in Dutch 'Zeedruif', is used a lot as a hedge. As a tree it grows white or red edible fruits that have one large sead. The tree can grow up to 10 meters (33 ft).

It can withstand wind very well and naturaly grows along the coast as the name suggests. Periodic salty wind will partly burn the leaves but will not kill the tree.

Grows fast when irrigated. Has little trouble with disease or pests. 'Trips' (insects, latin name Thrips) sometimes come on new leaves, this can cause the leaves to deform and partly dry out.
