Passionfruit - Nellie Kelly (C) (Grafted) 9/10

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 382 days 16hrs

Comments: - Grown a couple of these plants, often with a couple of fruiting seasons, but eventually they become daggy, so I remove them, but the rootstock is difficult to remove. Can be really prolific or not at all depending on amount of light and water. I Had one really prolific one a while back, for maybe 4-5 years, in which time it easily produced over 1000 fruit. it was on a sandstone wall in direct sun, occupying a space of approx 6x4m squared. Fruits taste great as well.

Pollination: Self Pollination

Comments: -

So this is a Nellie Kelly grafted black passionfruit. It has grown very well and started flowering in just 6 months as we head into winter, no fruit set yet.

If I had my time again I would purchase the non-grafted version of this, I have had to remove 3 random suckers which have popped up about 1m away from the vine so far. No suckers have grown below the graft since the first 2 weeks after planting.
