mature to cover a trellis, arbor or fence. The 'Issai' makes a suitable vine or ground covering.

well worth the extra effort.

vine that produces smooth green fruit in early spring. Produces seedless fruit without another pollinator, however greater
production success is produced with a male. Prefers full sun to partial shade. Can grow 25 to 30 ft. and fill a 200 sq. ft. trellis in time.

found this variety to be hardier than the Issai in our test plots.
