I found gthis info on a site called Biological Diversity out of Belize where this vine is considered a native.
"A slender and rather messy vine. This is not a very common species in Belize, and I only know it from the Cayo (Cy) district. It tends to be very shortlived and depends on disturbance. The fruits are edible while the leaves have hooked trichomes which makes them adhere to clothes similar to velcro. Larval food plant for the butterfly Heliconius charithonia."
Insteresting that the prior comment states that the fruit is extremely poisonous and this site states that it is edible. I would recommend more research before eating the fruit.
