Snotty Gobble

Cassytha melantha


A leafless green parasitic vine which flourishes in the canopies of trees, choking them of sunlight and eventually destroying the host tree. Develops green berries in spring 10-15 mm diameter which dry to black. Apparently these are edible (?!!).


Grows within the canopies of trees or shrubs across most of southern Australia.
