Answer: Akebia is self-fertile so if the flowers are pollinated by insects, you can expect some fruit. If fruit forms, it will be thick, purplish, 2"-4" long, sausage-looking, and edible. Fruit production is sporadic. Akebia grows equally well in sun or shade, will sprawl or climb, and can become rampant once established. You can keep the plant under control by pruning back hard in the winter.
