Propagation

Seed - best sown in a greenhouse as soon as it is ripe. Pre-soak dried seed in boiling water for 10 - 20 seconds or burn some straw on top of them and then stratify at 2 - 5°c for 2 months[4][2]. The seed usually germinates in 2 - 3 months at 15°c[5]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame or greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant out in late spring or early summer.

Cuttings of side shoots of the current season's growth, 5 - 8cm with a heel, August to December in a frame. The cuttings are very slow and can take a year to root[6][7]. The cuttings of this species usually strike readily[4]. Division in early spring. Take care because the plant resents root disturbance. Pot the divisions up and keep them in a lightly shaded position in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are growing away actively.

Layering in spring[2].

Cultivation

Requires a deep moist well-drained light or medium lime-free loam in sun or semi-shade[8][4][9][2], but plants produce less fruit when they are grown in the shade[2]. Best given a neutral or slightly acid soil[4].

A difficult plant to cultivate, even in its native California[4]. It is best given a sunny position against a wall[4]. Plants resent root disturbance and should be placed in their final positions as soon as possible[4][5].

There are some named varieties selected for their ornamental value[2].
