Iron deficiency in passionfruit?

    3 responses

Rick Parker starts with ...
Hi passionfruit lovers! My black passionfruit are having a problem on the leaves. I was told it is an iron deficiency so applied Iron Chelate as recommended. It hasn't made any difference and in fact the foliage continues to promote the problem.

It doesn't interfere with flowering or fruiting although it's a young vine and no fruit has ripened yet. I have 2 vines in different parts of the garden and they both show the same problem. It is also showing on my Orange Trumpet flower.

Has anyone seen this? Could it be a boron deficiency? Cheers, Rick 🙂💕

Hi Rick,

Can you send a few photos at different angles? young leaves, old leaves and whole tree. Is it grows in pot or ground (show photo also). Cheers

Hi Rick,

I think your passionfruit leaves turn yellow because of cold weather and problem more pronounced when it grows under the shade as it does not get enough sun light and heat during the winter time. The tree will go back to healthy state when the weather gets warmer say Sept-Oct. By then you need to apply 3-5kg of dynamic lifter and one hand full of citrus fertilizer every month. Cheers
