Notes

Seed - cooked. It can be ground into a powder and used as a condiment[1], a pepper substitute[2][3][4]. A light roasting brings out more of the flavour[5]. The seed is an ingredient of the famous Chinese 'five spice' mixture[5]. The peel is also used[6]. Young leaves are eaten[6][4][1]. No further details are given.

Propagation

Seed - best sown in a greenhouse as soon as it is ripe in the autumn. Stored seed may requires up to 3 months cold stratification, though scarification may also help[11]. Sow stored seed in a cold frame as early in the year as possible. Germination should take place in late spring, though it might take another 12 months. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter. Plant them out in early summer.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame. Root cuttings, 3cm long, planted horizontally in pots in a greenhouse. Good percentage[12].

Suckers, removed in late winter and planted into their permanent positions[11].

Cultivation

Prefers a good deep well-drained moisture retentive soil in full sun or semi-shade[13][14][15].

A very ornamental plant[13], it is usually hardy in most parts of Britain but can be damaged in severe winters[14]. Fruits are freely produced after a hot summer[14]. The flowers are formed on the old wood[5].
