Propagation

Seed - the fruit is usually seedless and, since it is a bi-generic hybrid, even if seed is produced it is not going to breed true. If you do come across seed then it is best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame. Sow stored seed in late winter in a cold frame. The seed may take 12 months or more to germinate. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out in late spring of the following year.
Cuttings of half-ripe wood, early summer/July in a frame, or of mature wood, late autumn in a frame, can be tried but are unlikely to bring much success. The most productive means of propagation are budding or grafting.
