Landolphia dulcis is a climbing shrub producing stout woody, perennial stems up to 10 metres long that attach themselves to other plants for support by means of tendrils. The plant is sometimes gathered from the wild for local use as a food and medicine
The fruit is edible but of variable palatability, sometimes sweet, sometimes acid, sometimes astringent. Perhaps these are varietal differences.Subsp dulcis is found in savannah in the west of the species range, whilst subsp barteri becomes more common in the east of the range, where it is found in dense forest.
