Native land : Coastal areas of Australia, West Africa

It is a perennial herb with a trailing or climbing stem growing 2-10 metres long and becoming somewhat woody with age. Blooming takes place with the greatest intensity between May and September. The seeds are impermeable to water; thus they float considerable distances in the sea. The seeds serve as an important source of dietary protein in West Africa and Nigeria. The leaves, stems, and seeds have many nutritional and medicinal uses due to their high protein-content and active bactericidal ingredients. A paste of the leaves is used as a treatment for boils.
