Snowberry – Happy New Year!
In Cayman we don’t have snow, but we do have Snowberries!
Snowberry – Chiococca alba, Family: RUBIACEAE.
This vine-like shrub has bright white fruits (drupes) that glisten in the sunlight against the bright evergreen foliage. It is easy to grow in a garden. Snowberry occurs in all three Cayman Islands in rocky thickets and woodlands, and in Bermuda, Florida, Texas, West Indies, Mexico and Central America.
