Grapes In Hougang ?

I posted in FB about my discovery of some grape vines growing somewhere in Hougang and my friend S got so excited that she gathered the CGers to visit the site on a Friday morning. Yes, it was an exciting find cos' we didn't expect that grapes can grow this big in Singapore. The grape vine was identified as a wild relative of the grape plant. It's a Cayratia mollisima (Wall.)Gagnepain. My CGer picked up some of the fallen berries and tasted it and said it was sweet but it didn't taste like the grapes we eat. So now we have some seeds and my CGer will be trying to germinate and grow them. Wish her success and stay tune for updates.
