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? | Jo Ludeman - Moyhu, VIC 03-Mar-2008

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....?

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 are now plenty of large passionfruit coming along nicely...i just hope they ripen in time ebfore winter

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 the Jacarranda tree it grew up and that was the end of the passionfruit vines.  Grew huge, hardly fruited!

I love passionfruit so bought this in 2009. Did nothing in a pot for a year, so I decided to bite the bullet & put it in the ground. Immediately took off. Badly knocked by the frost by the end of winter (we had a bad winter for frosts), but coming back nicely now. First fruit this year - just one, picked in early June - absolutely delicious, can't wait for more!

Died the following year - from root rot I suspect. It was in very heavy soil.

Comments: - February  2012   Black ?  Thought it was, but don't think so now. Seed came  from a fruit I bought from a fruit & vegie shop. Fruit have been dropping off the vine still greenish. I leave on bench & wait until they turn a pale Yellow ? - about a week.

Just tried the first ripe fruit ...sweet & amazing passionfuit aroma, photo coming

 Taken cuttings from the parent plant for future seasons, better than the grafted one I had , it just suckered out of control.

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 278 days 2hrs

Comments: - 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 ground over Autumn, Winter and Spring. Prone to some sort of insect I never identified, and ultimately kicked the bucket once the morning glory came near it. Not sorry to see it go. Was unproductive and fussy. Much prefer the fruit of the Panama anyway!
