Steyermark, J.A. 1963 Description 

A vine with grape-like leaves that is often mistaken for true grapes, which has berries that turn from green to shades of orange, rose, purple and finally turquoise, and is thus very ornamental. It is also a high climbing vine, growing up and covering the tops of the tallest trees in undisturbed forests.
