From the hot jungles of Asia comes this attractive and vigorous annual or perennial climber. Rapidly ascending trees or climbing supports, it soon opens out numerous, sizeable, delicately-fringed, five-petalled white flowers. In time they produce absolutely enormous, outstandingly spectacular bright red berries (or fruits!) which persist long after the stems die away, making quite a spectacular display. When cut open, they reveal the yellow flesh, which is inedible, but claims are made that it has a long history of treating a variety of complaints.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
