In Madagascar, the local plant expert to accompany us to the field of original reserve, climb a mountain, experts suddenly stopped to tell us, in front of a "tree" is the grape weng. This startled us, not succulent? How high!
At that time, my colleagues tried to climb a tree to see, he has more than 130 pounds. We do not suggest that he go up, this is not the weight "Weng crushed grapes". African experts say, all right, go! Colleagues climbed up the tree, yichanyichan way quite strong, really.
In the North plant, and a green grape is Weng, Madagascar specialty, but was small, and with growth in rock crevices. It can be awkward, clinging to the rocks, you are breaking without breaking.
