 o
mystery plant to identify

We have a glorious tangle of wisteria and other vines along a fence. I was cleaning it up a bit today and saw a plant I've not seen before; this is our third summer in the house. I'm thinking maybe it's come over from the other side of the fence. Any ideas on what it is/might be? The size of the largest fruits (if that's what they are) is about 3/4 of an inch long.

Thanks much!

Kiwi...edible small fruits

I agree with Susan. The hardy kiwis are grape-sized and unlike the fuzzy tropical ones, have smooth skin. Since the vines are either female or male, your must have both to have fruit.
