Question & Answer

is it a grafted one and will it grow in melbourne ( i have planted several passionfruits that have been grafted eg nellie kelly but all i get is vigorus bushes with big yellow flowers and no fruit and they end up a nuisance spreading everywhere) thanks. From:

It is cutting grown so you will not need to be vigilant controlling the rootstock from taking over which is the advantage of this form of propagation. Under specification and climate it says it likes warm temperate which suits Melbourne.

Nelly Kelly label from Tass1 in small pot in Dec 09. Intended to shade the metal shed, via training to a new 1.8m high picket and wire trellis. Put in ground Dec 23 09. Sandy soil, added clay (bentonite from kitty litter, zeolite, spongelite and cow manure. Within 2 weeks smal rootstock growth grew as much as the original nelly kelly. Cut off when planted out. Grafted variety then grew extremely quickly when gripped a bamboo stake, climbing that inside 2 weeks. Pinched out top growth above top wire Jan 24 2010, need it to split into 2 branches as only one leader grew. Cut back to wire after growth commenced at and slightly below desired height. Some yellow spotting of leaves, hopefully sucking pest rather than virus. Reached Across the middle of top wire May 2010. Previous leader and branch to the right stopped growing (for now?). Across all of the top September 2010. Hoping for branching falling down and then flowers and fruit - I've tried small cuts a couple buds, but not seen them shoot yet. Might be another year for fruit, but I won't be in this house to see them. A bit worried about rootstock shoots that I've needed to pull up. Hope this stops and doesn't happen the other side of the neighbours fence

Grafted black Nellie Kelly bought from Bunnings in May, to use to screen the lattice fence seperating the carport/driveway from the back yard.  The lattice faces North West. Used lots of dynamic lifter to fertilise when it was planted.

Currently it receives only low sun, being shaded in the late afternoon by an exisiting gum tree (which I plan to remove) and in the morning by the carport (which I don't plan to!)

Looks a bit poorly but should improve with more sun.  The chickens enjoy scratching around it and I have planted broadbeans nearby for green fertiliser later on. (Although the chooks have been stripping the bean plants of most of their leaves)

i am a big fan of passionfruit juice.  I had the Nellie Kellie vine for 5 years and it produced around 600 fruits every year before it died.  It likes lots of feed and water and hand pollination will enhance fruit set and fruits full of pulp.  Totally yummy when juiced.  Also taste fantastic with Miracle fruit!

It is hard to go past a black passionfruit in terms of flavour and fullness of fruit.  I need to construct a trellis for the vine though.  I do have seedling black passionfruit growing wild in the bush but I have not seen them fruit - this may be because they don't get enough sun.
