Notes

Fruit - raw or cooked. Fairly large and sweet but insipid raw[11, K]. The fruit is said to develop more flavour when it is cooked[1]. Another report says that the fruit is sour, bitter and unpalatable raw[2][1], though this does not agree with the plants we are growing[K]. The fruit is about 30mm in diameter[3].

Fruit

Material uses

A purple to dull blue dye is obtained from the fruit[4]. A good ground cover plant for a sunny position or light shade[2]. It spreads freely once established, but dies down over the winter and thus can allow other species to invade[K].

Propagation

Seed - requires stratification and is best sown in early autumn in a cold frame. Stored seed requires one month stratification at about 3°c and is best sown as early as possible in the year. Prick out the seedlings when they are large enough to handle and grow on in a cold frame. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring of the following year.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[3]. Tip layering in July. Plant out in autumn.

Division in early spring or just before leaf-fall in the autumn[3].

Cultivation

Easily grown in a good well-drained loamy soil in sun or semi-shade[5][6][3].

Sometimes cultivated for its edible fruit and occasionally naturalized in Europe[7]. Plants spread freely when in a suitable site and are apt to become invasive[8]. The plant adopts an almost herbaceous habit and is botanically a sub-shrub, only a small amount of woody stem persists overwinter[K].

Plants in this genus are notably susceptible to honey fungus[3].
