Richard, I just found this post, but the link has no more info. Can you tell me more about the fruit? Can it grow from cuttings?

After three years of getting its roots established and a lot of adjustment to the climate here, the plant is growing like crazy this spring.

Here's an article on the plant that might have a familiar writing style:

aka Magnolia Vine; I got a hold of some seeds last year and managed to get 3 to start. As of now the tallest is over 3ft. I am hoping maybe in the next year or so to start getting fruit. And no problem with our wet, cool winter climate.

" Schisandra chinensis 'Eastern Prince'

This Magnolia vine is a deciduous, twining, woody vine to about 20 feet, with unexceptional flowers and remarkable clusters of shiny red berries in late summer. Schisandra chinensis 'Eastern Prince' is an excellent choice for a shady nook in hot climates or full sun in coastal areas. The Magnolia vine prefers a rich, moisture-retentive soil and adequate water during the growing season. It is also very sensitive to salts in your water supply or fertilizer, so leach the roots regularly if you see light brown damage on leaf margins. Will take a few years to flower/fruit. 'Eastern Prince' is self-fertile, so it does not need a pollinator. Hardy to about 0 degrees F."

I hope you obtained seeds of the Eastern Prince hybrid, and hopefully they sprouted true to type. The wild species is dioecious. Also, the other species of Magnolia vine are largely ornamental with little or no edible fruit.

Don't remember where I got the seeds from but they are "Eastern Prince".
I also have Schisandra Grandiflora "Valentine" but have had no luck finding "Apricot Blush" (for which Valentine is a pollinator)......I just like unusual vines as well as bananas

Cross your fingers, feed them a bloom formula in your spring and post pictures of flowers.

I chose to buy rooted cuttings from One Green World because there is no waiting for maturity -- just acclimation in my area. In Oregon and points farther north they usually start producing the next year.

Default Re: Schisandra chinensis Eastern Prince

I have looked at One Green World in the past but being located in the US I do not chance trying to bring plants in from them.
Unfortunately my biggest problem with acquiring my plants is finding them "locally" - within Canada or through a plant broker or importer (which are few and far between). Bananas are classified as 'houseplants' with the CFIA so I can bring them across the border as long as I accompany them but other plants - especially anything tropical, edible or able to survive in our climate - will most likely not make it across......they have to be really special for me to even try

Eastern Prince planted adjacent to an east-facing retaining wall and a pole for future trellis support.
