Very cold resistant, dormant plants are hardy to at least -30°c but new growth in spring can be cut back by late frosts. Plants grow well on a wall and can also be grown into trees. Cats are very fond of this plant and can damage it by scratching it etc. A very ornamental plant, there are some named varieties that have been selected for their edible fruit. The form most often cultivated in this country is a male and it is quite possible that all the plants grown here have been developed from a single clone. Often confused with the closely related A. polygama, but it can be distinguished by its leaves which are heart-shaped at the base whilst those of A. polygama are tapered. Fruits are produced on second year wood or on fruit spurs on older wood, any pruning is best carried out in the winter. The flowers are sweetly scented. This is a climbing plant, supporting itself by twining around branches etc. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.Dioecious. Male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.
