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...

Don't know about the tradition of burying a animal liver/heart underneath so sprinkled in some iron chelates and is shooting away.

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.

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.

Passionfruit - Black

Am about to plant a Ned Kelly Black as recommended for Southern States. The old vine is huge but no longer bares fruit. Can any one tell me how long is a passion fruits productive life?
