Akebia fruit is supposedly edible. Hmmm. It is edible but there is not much to it. The jelly around the numerous seeds is sweet and milky but it is 95% black seeds and 5% jelly. It reminds me of trying to eat maypop fruit (passiflora incarnata). Yes they are edible but green grass is also edible. I think I was hoodwinked by the specialty fruit nursery I bought it from. Since I'd never tasted it I had to depend on their description of edible. It is an attractive vine with tropical looking fruit but the average person wouldn't eat it. Sort of like trying to eat "cold hardy" citrus.
