Description: An impressive species which we found difficult to believe when we first encountered this deciduous shrub in the high mountains of Guatemala in 2001. Where they grow to large shrubs with corky stems and very large dark green pinnately arranged leaves, very pale below. Bearing wide cymes of white flowers followed by enormous blue-black bloomy fruit very reminiscent of grapes. It was only on our second more determined attempt to collect the seed that we were successful from the Sierra los Cuchumatanes in 2004. Grown extensively for its medicinal properties in Central America.
