White Bryony


Common name : White Bryony, Wild Hop

Scientific name : Bryonia alba

Family : Cucurbitaceae

Native land : Europe and Northern Iran

White bryony is a climbing perennial plant with vines. It can grow up to 50 feet tall. It has dark green, shiny leaves that resemble those of a cucumber plant (simple, five-lobed and petiolate, and rough to the touch). A single, unbranched tendril is associated with each leaf. Its yellowish white flowers, borne in small panicles, yield small green berries that turn dark purple in late summer. The root resembles a large white turnip. These large roots effectively fuel re-growth in spring. All parts contain bryonin which is poisonous and may cause illness or death.
