Description: Always a nice surprise to collect the fruit of Stauntonia, before something eats it. Such was the case on the rainy day we gathered this fruit from a vine, clambering over a number of small trees and shrubs, 7m long. With foliage composed of up to 9 leaflets on slender pedicels, which in turn were held by long stiff petioles, while the sausage-shaped purple-flushed fruit were mostly in pairs at the end of thick stalks. These were the result of the (probably) scented bell-shaped flowers that would have been carried in spring. Best grown in a sheltered site out of freezing winds in a fertile well drained soil with some moisture retention. Closely related to and similar in habit to Stauntonia.
