Sinofranchetia chinensis

 Sinofranchetia chinensis is a vigorous hardy, deciduous Climber growing to 15 m. The stems have an attractive white bloom  It is in flower in May, and the fruits ripen in October. The books say the flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required) and that the plant is not self-fertile, But I have seen several reports that in fact female plants do bear fruit without a mate, and indeed my plant fruits yet is on its own.
