(Veldt Grape, Asthisamhari, Hadjod) Evergreen perennial succulent creeper native to East Africa, Bangladesh, India and Sri-lanka. Sectioned stems creep to a distance of 9 to 12 feet, producing grape-like leaves and tendrils, flowering white/green with burgundy highlights, giving way to clusters of red fruits. Traditional use (Ayurveda): Analgesic, healing, poulticed to speed healing of fractured bones. Young shoots edible, stir-fried or in curries.
<<A useful comment by a Vedic person: Widely used in Ayurveda, it’s commonly called Hadjod. Had meaning bones, jod meaning join together. It is also part of the cuisine in South India.>>
Plant prefers sun and fast-draining soil, infrequent watering. Tolerant of both acidic and alkaline conditions. Sometimes planted as a hedge or in hanging baskets.
