Dead Man's Fingers, Blue Sausage Fruit, Decaisnea fargesii

Hardy, Easy to Grow, Fast Growth, Showy Ornamental Fruit, Fall Color, Edible Fruits, Attracts Birds, Wildlife Food/Shelter

Decaisnea fargesii or Dead Man's Fingers is an upright, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub and noted for its showy ornamental edible fruit. Decaisnea belongs to the chocolate vine family and is native from the Himalayas to western China. This shrub typically grows to 20 feet tall and as wide. Theleaves are bright green odd-pinnate, which can be as long as 3 feet, emerging in mid-spring. The flowers are up to 2 inch, bright green-yellow, petal-less, blooming on pendent panicles, up to 18 inches long. Although individual flowers are not particularly showy, the large racemes in bloom are interesting and attractive. Flowers give way to the piece de resistance: cylindrical, bean like seed pods up to 6 inches long that ripen to dull metallic blue in fall. It is these fruits (actually fleshy follicles) that distinguish this plant. The common names of Dead Man's Fingers, Blue Sausage Fruit, Blue Cucumber Shrub and Blue Bean Tree all convey the general message that the fruits are quite interesting and unique. Fruits will split open at maturity to reveal a large mass of seeds imbedded in edible pulp with a sweet taste, but rather insipid. Lepchas (aboriginal inhabitants of Sikkim) relish this fruit, but it is not eaten much outside its native geographic range. Dead Man's Fingers is a surprisingly apt description of what the over-ripe fruit looks, and dare we say, feels like. This is a beautiful plant in its own right, but it really shines as an annual source of excellent Halloween decorations.

This species was discovered by Pere Paul Guillaume Farges (1844-1912) who lived in China and collected and recorded plants there from 1867 until his death. Decaisnea was originally considered to have only two species, D. insignis and D. fargesii, with the only difference between the two being that the former had yellow green fruit and the latter had blue fruit. Today, some experts continue to list two different species (see Royal Horticultural Society), but others have combined both species into D. insignis (see Flora of China).
