Our Feedback
I have been using slug banish for two years now and am delighted with the results. I also have used the bio-sterilant mustard and it appears to have have made an impact on the onion white rot which has ruined my onjon and garlic for the past two years. At the present time the onions and shallots are not showing any sign of disease, and the shallots will soon be ready to harvest. I wonder if anyone else has reported this?

With the 'Chocolate' part of this pretty climber's common name coming from the scent of its flower it is often overlooked that this is also a fruiting plant!

Given support, this will easily grow to 20 - 30 feet (6 - 10 metres) with a similar spread. Early in the Spring beautiful dark purple, almost wax like, flowers cover the vine and give off a scent of chocolate vanilla.

After a good long Summer, purple sausage-shaped fruit are formed. Within the thick skin will be found a lovely creamy white pulp that has a lovely sweet flavour. Whilst partially self fertile, growing several Chocolate Vines will ensure pollination.

  • Thrive in all soil types except those prone to laying wet.
  • Happy in partial shade or full sun.
  • Vigorous and strong growing.
  • Requires support.
