A vigorous, deciduous climber, admired for their foliage and fruit. Ideal for growing up walls and through pergolas. The cup-shaped flowers are white and appear along the branches among the toothed, heart shaped leaves in mid-summer. Fruit form on a female plant, and will need a male plant for fertilising, unless the cultivar grown is self-fertile.To encourage fruiting, pinch young shoots back to about 30cm in summer. After harvesting, allow the fruit to develop for a month before using. ‘Matua’ is a male plant which will fertilise any female plants. Doesn’t produce fruit itself, and you will need a female plant for fruit. Produces cream-yellow male flowers.
