Peppervine fruit

Peppervine is a plant in the grape family, common in the wild, but it’s not a native plant. The leaves look like grape leaves, but the fruit has very unusual colors – blue, purple, and sometimes pink berries, with different colors in each cluster.

  1. We call that porcelain berry here on Cape Cod – Ampelopsis brevipedunculata. A ferocious invasive that takes over areas here. Too bad, the berries are spectacular in color and you’ve captured perfectly!

    • Thanks – I’d read that it can be invasive. It’s just common in the Boston area. It was hard to identify, I found a description at the New England Wildflower Society website.
