The vine will grow 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 metres) long, and particularly likes to grow up trees or along fences. It dies back entirely in winter, but by the following May, it reappears and grow so fast that it appears it has just popped out of the ground (thus the name “May Pop.”) It is so aggressive and hardy that some consider it a weed. It can grow from seed or by spreading its roots.
It flowers with five-petalled fragrant blossoms, which bees and butterflies love.
Eat the fruit and spit the seeds out, or sieve the pulp for use in dishes.
