This plant is very similar to C. bonduc, but has yellow to tan colored seeds. Some report that the leaves may be slightly larger.
It is a large, spiny vine that sprawls over shrubs and small trees. The recurved spines are treacherous, but it can serve as a barrier plant near beaches. It is tolerant of salt spray and deep sands.
