Toddalia asiatica is a prickly, climbing, evergreen shrub producing stems from 2 - 20 metres long. The stems attach themselves to other plants for support by means of their sharp, recurved prickles. When growing in an open, sunny position, the plant often grows as a shrub and does not climb. The plant is harvested from the wild for local use as a food, medicine and source of dyes and essential oils. It is sometimes cultivated for medicinal use and is also grown as a hedge.
