Bears Sweet-Flavored Fruit and Smells Like Chocolate!
(7 customer reviews)
This 15- to 20-ft. vine not only smells like dessert, it also produces loads of lovely, lilacpurple flowers from May through June. Hardy in Zones 4-9, Chocolate Vine bears unique, leathery leaves that grow in attractive clusters and are evergreen in milder climates. Can be used as a climber on arbors, trellises and fences or as a lush ground cover. Large, edible seedpods ripen in early autumn and taste like tapioca pudding! Prefers full sun to partial shade. Plant two varieties for pollination. Potted plants.

I have received my two vines (one of each Variety) the silver bell seems fresh and alive....How ever the other is very small and seems half dead...I guess time will tell, like the title only 50% of my orders seem to arrive with any excitement

Wow! This was so lush when I received it. Watered it right away, and put it in a window. It shot off and grew 5" in one week! There were at least 4 shoots coming up at the base also. It kept going, so I pinched off the main vine to give the base plant more growth, I gave it a support, and I planted it today. Very satisfied with the plant I received!

Pathetically small for the price
Reviewed By: Kelly (Falls Church, VA)
I was really surprised when I finally received this. First I had to wait until it was really, really warm outside before they even delivered it. Then it was all of 3 inches tall. I called, and they sent a new one. This one had two branches 1 inch tall, one branch 3 inches, and one branch 5 inches. For the price I would expect more than what later told me was only a "starter plant". In 2 months it's only grown 2 inches! I'll see what it's doing in 10 years-maybe it will have grown. Disappointing.
