Passionfruit - Grafted Black (Grafted) 9/10

i am a big fan of passionfruit juice.  I had the Nellie Kellie vine for 5 years and it produced around 600 fruits every year before it died.  It likes lots of feed and water and hand pollination will enhance fruit set and fruits full of pulp.  Totally yummy when juiced.  Also taste fantastic with Miracle fruit!

Passionfruit - Panama Sweet Gold (G) 10/10

Just one of my many passionfruits as you can never have enough. This one is growing up a wire mesh as a screen for our mini orb rock bathroom. The wallabies have taken a bit of a liking to some of them. They prune the passionfruit and the pawpaws but so far have left everything else alone. Fair is fair I suppose as you can t always have it your own way!!!

Passionfruit - Panama Red (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda19's Edible Fruits
Update: 1382 days 4hrs

Comments: -

Why do I worship Passionfruit?? Let me count the ways:

Easy to grow, looks great/lush, perfect flower, no pests, versatile fruit - can even chuck the whole fruit in the freezer when there is a glut - no prep or packaging required!

In order to save space I have:

Panama Gold - grafted

Black/purples - grafted (Nelly kelly brand)

Pan Red seedling (photo)

Sunshine special seedling (has a mild woodiness virus)

Common red seedling (cinnabarina - sp?)

The panama red and golds are great. They do tend to flower much later in summer (as we are semi-tropical) and carry fruit right thru till next spring - with them slowing ripening and dropping thru winter. The winter ripened one's are not as sweet as in those that ripen in the warmer weather. The pan red seedling is out of control and fruits madly.

The purple Nellie Kellies: it took 4 vines before I got a "go-er" - I love the intense flavour of any of the purples the best.  Nov 2010: I am probably less than a month of harvest - so they are much earlier than the panamas.

The sunshine special is a lovely large fruit that tastes more like a purple. It's about a month behind the the NK purple. Lorna in Albany is growing these - so they can handle cool climates. Very tasty fruit and a little sweeter than NK purple.

My common red (Big Red) is a dud - produces very round, very heavy, yellow fruit that is as sour as a lemon! yukk.

I lavish lots of water and manure on my vines. They have very shallow and  searching roots so it doesn't pay to be tidy around them - I leave all the leaf litter and give them a wheelbarrow load of manure at a time (out to radius 2m from trunk)  Some late winter/early spring dynamic lifter or blood n bone, trace elements and potash good too. Need lots of water when holding a big crop. A little magnesium also helps to sweeten them. A very hungry and thirsty vine - and with the huge size they get to and the fruit load they can carry - it's not surprizing!?

I believe passionfruit like their roots in the shade and their head in full sun. They seem to appreciate a cool root run and training against a warm masonary wall is perfect in a cool climate.

I have not needed to hand pollinated to date.

did you try a sunshine special? they seem to do well in WA. my theory is these are a bit finicky. when one goes, it will go nuts. I just planted 2 (panama red and gold) up the same fence a sunshine special is on. will be interesting to see what happens

Have put in three mor-two from seeds & one grafted-fingers crossed.

you need two lambs fry. bury one under your passionfruit as you plant it. lambs fry water is brilliant for the passionfruit = lambs fry water is what you soak the lambs fry in before you peel it. dont waste the second lambs fry - re-learn the great taste of lambs fry and onions. feed the plant with liver water onece or twice a year and things will improve.

Passionfruit - Grafted Black

Brad1's Edible Fruits

Nelly Kelly label from Tass1 in small pot in Dec 09. Intended to shade the metal shed, via training to a new 1.8m high picket and wire trellis. Put in ground Dec 23 09. Sandy soil, added clay (bentonite from kitty litter, zeolite, spongelite and cow manure. Within 2 weeks smal rootstock growth grew as much as the original nelly kelly. Cut off when planted out. Grafted variety then grew extremely quickly when gripped a bamboo stake, climbing that inside 2 weeks. Pinched out top growth above top wire Jan 24 2010, need it to split into 2 branches as only one leader grew. Cut back to wire after growth commenced at and slightly below desired height. Some yellow spotting of leaves, hopefully sucking pest rather than virus. Reached Across the middle of top wire May 2010. Previous leader and branch to the right stopped growing (for now?). Across all of the top September 2010. Hoping for branching falling down and then flowers and fruit - I've tried small cuts a couple buds, but not seen them shoot yet. Might be another year for fruit, but I won't be in this house to see them. A bit worried about rootstock shoots that I've needed to pull up. Hope this stops and doesn't happen the other side of the neighbours fence

it tastes yum and I somehow managed to put it in 'just the right spot'. After I planted it it was struggling, but then I had a baby and started chucking his bathwater on there every day - about 9ltrs, and it took off - it is growing like crazy with minimal attention, now! I only water it on the odd occasion if it hasn't rained.

Question:

I discovered thattoo much nitrogen makes the plant drop immature fruit (I tipped the last of the 'poo tea' on it and it wasn't happy).  What is a good mix of fertiliser, because it is a 'gross feeder', isn't it....?

This has not been a great success story to date - I have hardly had any fruit off it, and bought a new passionfruit this year to replace it... and now the original one is loaded with fruit! (My grandfather maintained that "Sunnypash" was better than Nelly Kelly, but I haven't been able to find a Sunnypash.)
