Cultivation

Succeeds in any ordinary garden soil in sun or shade[6][5]. Prefers semi-shade[7][8].

The young growth in spring can be damaged by late frosts. A fast growing climbing plant[5], supporting itself by twining around other plants etc[8]. Any pruning is best carried out after the plant has finished flowering[8].

Dioecious, but female plants can produce fruits in the absence of male plants[9][5]. The report does not say if this fruit contains viable seed, so it is best to assume that male and female plants must be grown if seed is required[K].
