Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From an unexpected find on a trek through the Hoàng Liên Son mountains in the north of Vietnam in 2007 with Ben Kettle et al. Our porters had found this bright yellow fruit and devoured the majority of it just leaving the large black glossy seed spat out all over the trail. Here the evergreen climber was scrambling to 6-7m over large shrubs, with 7-leafleted leathery leaves pale below while the plump yellow fruit 15 cm long hung from slender stalks. Flowering for the first time for us in 2012 with only male yellow flowers 3cm long, hope to see some females soon to confirm the identity. Requiring a sheltered site out of freezing winds in any type of drained fertile soil.
