AKEBIA FRUITS IN OUR GARDEN (庭のアケビの実)


Akebia vine fruits have changed their colour rapidly
since the beginning of October, some of which have split open.
I pollinated their flowers in spring.
It may be the reason of large yield this year.

アケビの実が今月初めから急に色が変化して、一部は開いてきています.
春に受粉をしたのですが、たぶんそれが今年の豊作の理由でしょう.


Two photos of the entrance arch below show the fruits of Akebia trifoliata. 

上の二枚の写真は庭の入り口のアーチのミツバアケビです.


The trug is full of fruits. 
They include three species/varieties;
A wild species of Akebia trifoliata (mixture of red and purple), 
A garden species of Akebia trifoliata (pure purple)
and Akebia quinata (brown).
They look so beautiful, and taste sweeeet. 

籠はアケビの実でいっぱいです.
3つの種類の実が入っています.
ミツバアケビの野生種(赤と紫の混ざった)
ミツバアケビの園芸種(綺麗な紫)
そして、アケビ(茶色)です.
みんなとっても綺麗で、甘~いです.
