Western Wild Grape

Vitis arizonica
Vitaceae family

      The grape is very similar to the domestic grape found in vineyards and backyards. It has a vine structure and will climb anything nearby and may grow grapes that are edible just like the ones in the supermarket.
The leaves are useful,as well. They have been used for dressing wounds. Taken internally, the leaves have been used for intestinal problems and snake bites.
