Jim Gilbert's Nature Notes: Wild Grapes

  • by: Jim Gilbert Special to the Star Tribune
  • Updated: August 22, 2013 - 11:32 PM

Wild grapes are now offering hikers a refreshing snack. A grape vine is a climbing, woody perennial best recognized by its lobed, maple-like leaves and by its purple berries that grow in bunches and contain seeds. Grapevines need sunlight and will reach far to get it, sometimes harming the trees over which they climb.
