Introducing Akebia trifoliata, also known as Chocolate Vine or Three-leaf Akebia. This deciduous climber grows up to 30 ft at a fast rate and boasts delicate flowers that bloom in April and seeds that ripen from September to October. This unique plant is a member of the Lardizabalaceae family and is native to China, Japan, and Korea. The fruit of the Akebia trifoliata is raw and sweet but slightly insipid. However, adding a little lemon juice can enhance its delicate flavor. The fruit looks like a deep-purple-colored sausage and is valued more as a novelty. The dried young leaves of the plant are also used as a tea substitute. The Akebia trifoliata can grow in full shade, semi-shade, or no shade and prefers moist, well-drained soil. Hardy to zone 5, this plant is not frost-tender and can thrive in light, medium, or heavy soils of all pH levels. Add a touch of unique flair to your garden with the Akebia trifoliata Chocolate Vine.
