Description

A native of Japan, China and Korea, the climbing, very strong stems of this vigorous, hardy climber, bear five-part leaves, and very fragrant, chocolate-purple flowers, followed by violet, sausage-shaped, edible fruit pods which can be up to 4” long, and which split open revealing sizeable black seeds embedded in a whitish pulp, which is reputed to be edible but we do not recommend this.........

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
