Kadsura coccinea - good to eat or not?

    3 responses

Linton starts with ...
The Chinese Kadsura flowers are opening now and since there are 2 or 3 plants all flowering at the same time they should achieve pollination and make fruit right?

However, can't find much information about what the fruits taste like or how good they are to eat. Please advise if you have already tasted these and if they are worth growing. Thank you.

The flowers are beautiful! Hope it doesn't take too long for mine to flower. Sorry that I don't have any useful information for you, they seem pretty uncommon in Aus. Hopefully a member from overseas can offer their opinion!

Hullo Joel, how you going...

the plants are flowering at about 3 - 4 years so you won't have long to wait. It's not often that we come across an exotic fruit plant like these that are very cold hardy and can grow well (and flower) in temperate zones like Melbourne and Adelaide.

They grow in the wild in Southern China and Northern Vietnam where they are called Na rung, meaning wild Na as distinct from the more common Na which is a different species altogether.

I asked a friend from Vietnam about the taste and he told me the Na fruit are very expensive there now. The white part in the centre is eaten and is nice and sweet and they don't eat the thick skin around it. Nice pictures of Na rung fruit here:

To be continued.....

Mmm... i had 3 of these growing but sadly 2 of them met with an untimely end. If anyone knows where I could get more seed or seedlings would be greatly appreciated
