Go and see your butcher and see if he can get an Ox heart. Dig a 600mm hole for the heart fill and plant the vine on top. I believe they like the high iron content. | Brian Pegler - Thornton, NSW 15-Sep-2017

Passionfruit - Panama Red (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda19's Edible Fruits
Update: 2863 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Why do I worship Passionfruit?? Let me count the ways:

Easy to grow, looks great/lush, perfect flower, no pests, versatile fruit - can even chuck the whole fruit in the freezer when there is a glut - no prep or packaging required!

In order to save space I have:

Panama Gold - grafted

Black/purples - grafted (Nelly kelly brand)

Pan Red seedling (photo)

Sunshine special seedling (has a mild woodiness virus)

Common red seedling (cinnabarina - sp?)

The panama red and golds are great. They do tend to flower much later in summer (as we are semi-tropical) and carry fruit right thru till next spring - with them slowing ripening and dropping thru winter. The winter ripened one's are not as sweet as in those that ripen in the warmer weather. The pan red seedling is out of control and fruits madly.

The purple Nellie Kellies: it took 4 vines before I got a "go-er" - I love the intense flavour of any of the purples the best.  Nov 2010: I am probably less than a month of harvest - so they are much earlier than the panamas.

The sunshine special is a lovely large fruit that tastes more like a purple. It's about a month behind the the NK purple. Lorna in Albany is growing these - so they can handle cool climates. Very tasty fruit and a little sweeter than NK purple.

My common red (Big Red) is a dud - produces very round, very heavy, yellow fruit that is as sour as a lemon! yukk.

I lavish lots of water and manure on my vines. They have very shallow and  searching roots so it doesn't pay to be tidy around them - I leave all the leaf litter and give them a wheelbarrow load of manure at a time (out to radius 2m from trunk)  Some late winter/early spring dynamic lifter or blood n bone, trace elements and potash good too. Need lots of water when holding a big crop. A little magnesium also helps to sweeten them. A very hungry and thirsty vine - and with the huge size they get to and the fruit load they can carry - it's not surprizing!?

I believe passionfruit like their roots in the shade and their head in full sun. They seem to appreciate a cool root run and training against a warm masonary wall is perfect in a cool climate.

I have not needed to hand pollinated to date.

Not sure it's actually this, we lost the tags on pretty much all the fruit. It was actually called royal red or something, big fist sized fruits on a massive vine that covers over half of my big bottlebrush trees canopy. Always drops green fruit since the cockatoos pull them off and nibble at half of them. Very rarely fruitbats go for them too. It's on a hill, so no ladder possible, all the fruit is out of our reach. Pretty much never stops fruiting except in extreme drought or cold.

Love, love, love my Panama passionfruit!! 


Planted in early Autumn against the north facing brick wall in a mound of compost, over a handful of chicken livers, and the thing has gone great guns ever since. It gets nothing but rain water now, and the VERY occasional handful of pelletised chicken manure. Mulched with whatever is as hand. It has attempted to TAKE OVER THE WORLD- or, my house. It has vicious weedy morning glory winding all around it and it just does not care.


I've yet to build a trellis it actually stays on; it would much prefer to grow wherever it wants, around the corner and along the ground on the west side of the house and then climb the stairs to take over the security screens. Or up through the old crepe myrtle five meters away and across the grass. 


I get dozens and DOZENS of fruit every year, but while the vine goes ballistic over summer, it is not until the rains come down in March that it flowers (even if I manually water and water- it only responds to heavy rains!), and then I'm harvesting for almost the entire Autumn/Winter season. I then cut it back for the beginning of spring, and let it go crazy again over Summer. It definitely does not go dormant in the cooler months, but then, Brisbane does not get terribly cold to begin with?


Fruit is tart and sweet and very juicy and super delicious, really lovely strong passionfruit taste, almost sweet, without being sour. The rind is thick, but the pulp is generous, and the fruit is very large. The taste really is outstanding, and everything we make with them tastes incredible. That's on limited rain water alone, and far superior to anything we've ever bought from the shops. 


I'm trying to make room for a Yellow Panama, now, as my vine has just had it's third fruiting season, and I'm told it will start to wind down soon, and die in three years or so? I'm sort of addicted to a massive amount of passionfruit to find purpose for. Freezing the last of it for Christmas works really well, and saves me a butt load with putting together the Christmas pavlovas!
