Male flowers on separate plants. Fruit form only on female plants
but a male pollinator is required. Plant into free-draining,
slightly acid sandy I cam. Needs full sun but protection from
hot, strong winds. Support on trellis, fence or pergdla,
tying vine to support. Don't twist vine about wires. Use
a thick mulch, feed using high nitrogen complete food in
Spring and well rotted animal manure in Autumn and keep
water supply up.
Plant around 7m apart with 1 male for up to
9 female plants. Fruit is produced on the first
6 buds of the present years growth. Winter prune to
remove all wood older than 1 year other than structural
branches and shart laterals around 40cm apart. Summer
prune all water shoots.
