MT WAVERLEY, VIC, Australia
Grows extremely fast except for winter when growth slows. Just started flowering hoping for fruit excited for some delicious fruit. Has fragrant flowers.
RUNCORN, QLD, Australia
Tried but DIED. I had this planted along the same wall as my Panama, about a meter away, same growing conditions and same treatment. The black was fussy, wilted badly without twice daily watering in my Brisbane heat even after growing strong in the gro...

Always looks sick
Don't know about the tradition of burying a animal liver/heart underneath so sprinkled in some iron chelates and is shooting away.
Carlton North, Vic, Australia
This one has been doing extremely well, with up to two hundred fruit each season. Some unripe fruit even have been staying on the vine over winter.
FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
Bought not long ago from bunnings. Currently still in it's pot under my front veranda in shade. Preparing area for planting. So far doing well, it's trying to climb up my window pane.

New Lambton, NSW, Australia
Planted a small seedling in November, hoping i might get some fruit next spring. However less than 6 months later it is covering the entrie trellis and flowers everywhere, sometimes over 10 a day. It needed some help from me for pollination, but there ...

This one forms an arch over the gate into chook run. It has a lot of fruit on it already, after only 1 year.

Growing strongly now established. No fruit yet.Only a few flowers this year and no fruit - wondering if possums or the like have stolen the flowers.Loved the wet 2012 flowered a bit but still only one fruit ...Well the storm in April 2015 took out th...

Flagstaff Hill, SA, Australia
I live in the uk and this was purchased for my daughter and son in law. They think they probably planted in the wrong place and perhaps didn't water it enough.
Fairfield, VIC, Australia
Thriving although all my passionfruit had a really hard time last summer with temperatures in Melbourne up to 47C and hot dry winds
