Description - Not just producing an abundance of delicious fruits, this fast-growing climber is also highly ornamental.
It's laden with large, toothed leaves throughout the year (if kept warm enough), and then in summer, spectacular white flowers appear, each ringed with purple.
Later, the edible yellow or purple-black fruits start developing, growing to around 5cm in length, and often going wrinkly before they are ready to pick
