It is definitely kadsura coccinea, or pineapple grape.

I am growing three right now, but mine have red skin. I don't think anyone else on Australia has them.

Other than growing it for aphrodisiac attribute, why are you growing this dioecious vine?  What does this Liana fruit taste like?  When do you think your will fruit, I might be interest for trade with whitman fiberless seeds;  I am quite a big sucker for the vine fruit with pharmaceutical interest!  Us Rednecks are too poor to afford Viagra, but we certainly dont mind growing it  & repopulate Appalachia! 😆
