Sea Grape Tips

Print this entry

  • Each sea grape plant has both male and female flowers on an inflorescence.  If you look close enough at the flowers, the male flowers will produce powdery pollen from the protruding stamens, while the female flowers will not.  Also, the female flowers are less numerous and appear less showy.   Ref:  Naomi Hoffman, Botanist, Honolulu Botanical Gardens
  • Gordon Tait says that if it has a red growing tip it’s a female and if it’s a green growing tip, it’s a male.
