Flower

Fragrant white blooms appear in May. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown to get fruit) and are pollinated by bees. Flower open white, then fade to creamy yellow.

Fruit

The egg-shaped fruit is a fuzzy brown large edible berry that is formed on female plants. They are formed on second-year wood and fruit spurs of older wood.
