Deciduous woody vines known to live for 70 years and are moderately fast growing. Large deeply lobed leaves. Very Hardy.
Self-fertile. Bunches of small green flowers borne on current seasons growth. Adverse conditions at time of flowering (cold and wind) could result in low fruit numbers or dropped fruit.
