Chocolate Vine is a vigorous woody climbing vine with edible seed pulp that is semi-evergreen in warmer climates.  The attractive blue-green foliage has grey-blue undersides that hide the chocolate-scented flowers that bloom in spring.  Long sausage-shaped violet seed pods follow the flowers, which split open in fall. Grows best with support in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established.  Extremely aggressive spreader.
