A vigorous evergreen vine with trifoliate leavescollected by Dan Hinkley in Sichuan which has purplish flowers and bears fairly enormous fruit which are like clustered fat light violet bananas although species can also have yellowish fruit. Quite the fantastical garden element when these ripen in late summer and fall! This is vigorous so a stout trellis (such as the one Dan has this growing on in the front of his house) or strong supporting tree is required. There is currently a good deal of research being conducted in China investigating Akebia as a new fruit crop.
