Uncarina grandidieri

Uncarina grandidieri (Succulent Sesame) - Uncarina grandidieri is a most attractive plant. The species is named in honor of Alfred Grandidier (1836-1921), an intrepid explorer and collector in Madagascar. The flower resembles a large Petunia in form and is bright yellow with a dark throat, as in the "Black Eyed Susan Vine" (Thunbergia alata). The stems are stout and become thickened with age. They may ultimately attain a height of 3 meters. The leaves resemble those of the cotton plant (genus Gossypium) and are finely hairy and are sticky to the touch, yielding a musty odor when rubbed. The leaves are deciduous during the winter resting season. The fruit has small inwardly pointed barbs mounted on 3/4" pedicels. Don't touch this fruit unless you want to spend some time trying to remove it. No joke, my fingers have been stuck to it.
