Leaves are simple and small. Very pronounced venation on underside of leaf. Two distinct leaf types: juvenile foliage is very small and tend to hug wall, or trellis that it is growing on. Mature foliage is larger to 2 or 3 inches long and the stem get coarse and starts sticking out from rest of vine. Hairy pear-shaped fruits (to 2.5" long) may appear on outdoor plants throughout the year.
