  • Light Required

    Chocolate vine is very shade tolerant and will grow well in covered woodland settings. That being said, the best flowering and fruiting will occur when the plant is located in full sun, so if that is your priority, plant the vine somewhere where you can ensure it gets at least six hours of sunlight daily.

  • Watering

    Provide weekly watering until vines are established, then water during periods of drought so that plants get at least one inch of water per week. Chocolate vine is mildly tolerant of drought-like conditions, so you can wait until the top inch or two of the soil is dry before watering.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    Unless you are growing chocolate vine as a ground cover, it will need a sturdy structure to support it as it climbs. If you wish to harvest the fruits of the vine, plan to plant at least two vines to increase the chances of pollination and fruiting. Consider the mature size of the chocolate vine when incorporating this plant into your landscape design. This isn’t a specimen that will daintily clamber up your mailbox. Although the vine doesn’t cling, you can train it up a drain spout or across a privacy fence with the help of some heavy-duty twine or plastic bird exclusion netting.
