Kangaroo Vine, native grape
This vigorous climber has green leaves and climbs with tendrils. It bears small flowers and edible fruits. It is most commonly used as an indoor foliage plant in colder areas and prefers well composted soil with ample moisture. Native grapes from the Kangaroo vine were eaten by the Aborigines and the early settlers. They have a grape-like taste but can irritate the throat if eaten in large numbers. The larger stems when cut into pieces and allowed to drain produce drinking water. The grapes were sometimes made into jam by early settlers.
