Description: Woody-stemmed, twining climber with leaves comprising of three leaflets, which are purple flushed in spring. Vanilla-chocolate scented, dark purple flowers appear in early spring (in March for us) followed by late summer with sausage shaped purplish fruits to 13cm long, if pollinated. Best grown in full sun to part shade in drained soil. Second generation seed raised from our original collection from the Fukuroi area of Honshu, Japan in 1997. For fruit you must have two clones (seedlings) i.e. not cuttings from the same plant as are normally offered in Western cultivation.
