Description: Arising from a more or less tuberous root, an herbaceous twining climber to around 4m long with slender stems and branches bearing peltate (umbrella-like) orbicular thin textured leaves to 12 cm across, somewhat glaucous below. With separate male and female axillary congested cymes of tiny yellowish flowers borne late spring-summer followed by flattened green maturing bright red fruit, containing the crescent-shaped 'moon-seed' this group of climbers are named after. Best grown in sun-part shade in any fertile retentive but well drained soil.
