Hi help please growing on my clematis
never seen them before
are they poisonous?
Strange leaves for a Clematis ! They look like figs, never seen those growing on a Clematis.
they are not growing on your clematis.
They look like akebia fruit.
Definitely not a clematis. They may be passion fruit.
Figs are green I think
passion fruit are small & full of tiny pips
thsee are pear shaped
thanks so far
always beleived these were clematis as flowered earlier
I think nut got it - Akebia (Chocolate vine):
The fruit on my rampant passionflower are like orange apricots and they do make quite a nice jelly. These are not they.
I think akebia too. Figs can be green or purple.
Akebia quinata fruit. Surely you can spot that Akebia climber growing in the vicinity of your clematis? Where do you live? Normally akebias don't produce mature fruit in colder climates.

It is possible that the Akebia Quinata climber belongs on the neighbour's side of fence as I can see evidence of the fruit hanging on the other side of the fence. It's also very possible that the flowers were not so obvious in the early spring time. Their leaves are quite small and if there is a Clematis growing around the same area, the leaves will have been covered up.
definitely Akebia Quinata. There were some fruiting in a garden Nutcutlet and I visited think it was last year ... Was it Oxborough Hall in Norfolk?
