This delectable seaweed that looks like tiny grapes are called lato or caulerpa lentillifera. It’s very popular in the Philippines and in Japan, they call it Umi-budo. Lato is an unusual-looking and enigmatic seaweed. It’s not obvious at first sight, but they are edible and delicious. Caulerpa lentillifera, Sea Grapes, Latok, and Green Caviar are a few of the names for lato. It is a seaweed well known to the Philippines and close-by countries. This seaweed variety is the main ingredient for a popular Filipino salad called “Ensaladang Lato” which translates to Seaweed Salad. This seaweed doesn’t grow on the seashore but in intertidal zones, close to mangroves. That kind of site is common in Palawan (Located in the Philippines) and the water temperature is perfect for the lato as it rarely goes down under 29 degrees Celcius. Lato seaweed grows at the bottom of the sea, between 3 and 5 meters deep, 3 meters for low tide, 5 meters for high tide.
