Schizandra – Fruit with Five Flavors

Schizandra – Fruit with Five Flavors:
The magnolia vine, Schisandra chinensis, is beautiful and edible.
It climbs, has dark green leaves and bears long bunches of scarlet berries.

In China it is known as the fruit of five flavours, because the berries taste sweet, sour, salty, hot and bitter all at the same time.
It prefers slightly acid soil, but tolerates others.
