Delayed ripening may be characteristic of Mediterranean aroids: I've 
never seen fruit on my Arum pictum, but Biarum tenuifolium doesn't ripen 
until early summer from flowering in September. And it's true of most 
other autumn-flowering Mediterranean bulbs, Crocus, Colchicum, 
Sternbergia etc (though not Narcissus).
