Grow this on a water tank, the large thermal mass stops the frost. It's still winter and the next batch of fruit is only a few weeks away, they are large but still green. These can be a bush pest, so make sure you pick them....

Comments: - Spring 2011: Everyone says that these are the bomb and I LOVE passionfruit so when I saw it at the nursery I thought I might try it out! :O)


Sumemr 2011:  Despite how strongly it started out my poor passionfruit died. There didn't seem to be any reason - one day a branch just died, then the next and the next. It was really weird. My grandma gave me another for Christmas so I am trying again. The tag recommends growing it in a pot so I am trying that this time. Fingers crossed!!

Nothing at all seems to have bothered it yet, despite the massive slug and snail invasion that we've had this spring.

Mine (6 months & vigorous) just carked it. I think maybe my dog own (1 of 3) peed on it. Also found a balm of gilead uprooted. My dog payback. I am going to ask the seller if any others sudden death.

Passionfruit - Banana (Seedling) 6/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 965 days 1hrs

Only had one ripen over winter, taste was pretty average for a passionfruit, with extremely hard and bitter seeds which are inedible in my opinion.


Wouldn't really recommend growing this variety at this point over a standard passionfruit, but since mine has probably 50 flowers on it at the moment, i'll see what fruits ripened over summer taste like by comparison.


If fruits don't improve in quality i'll probably pull it out in favour of trying to grow another passionfruit here.


Pros are that it is a nice looking vine in my opinion, pink flowers are unique and attractive to look at when in bloom all over the vine, and this thing will just grow non stop even through winter.

Grew this from seed as a cool climate alternative to black passionfruit. It has grown so well, easy to germinate and is growing strongly since I put it in the ground. I'll update when it fruits.

Grew very vigorously, but still hadn't fruited when we moved in Dec 2013. Will be planting another one at the new house though, as it grew so well.

Passionfruit - Banana (Seedling) 8/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 72 days 11hrs

Comments: - Not as tasty as a real passionfruit - but I like them anyway. They fruit when not much else is around, here, so a welcome change from the usual early spring lack of fruit variety. They need a cool root run here and shade from midday onwards in our hot summers. Being so early they beat the fruit fly season also.

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Low Sun

Pruned By: 50% in

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced Acid lovers alternating with slow release organic chook manure pellets. Little and often.
