This plant easily found everywhere. iTs fast growing shrub make it as one of our invasive species. It also become covering plant for rubber plantation area. It is a climber. Small and hard stems like wire. 3 area leaf like grape leaves and a a very strong smell if crushed. Flower white in color. Fruit edible when ripe. Fruit covering like some sort insect trapping plant but no scientific data shown that this plant insectivore.
