Hi, I have read all problems with growing passion fruit but no reply explains why the pulp is really dry and tasteless, thanks Rob.

What variety have you got there?
Has you soil around the vine become water repellant? More common than many think.

My passionfruit vines are still very young but i had the same problem with my brown turkey fig trees in pots last year...the fruits are dry and tasteless.. This year there was more rain here and I water regularly...the figs were fantastic. I would link your problem to inadequate water.

I second that au0rey! Give them some trace elements too Rob, and in spring: potash and manure. My fig and passionfruit vine are in the same garden bed and very happy together - I let the sprinkler run for and hour or so about 3 times a week in summer plus dripper irrigation once a week) at least.
My figs get dry without water too au0rey...they are so lovely when it all goes well....agree with Jason here - a lovely and under rated fruit :)

Hi rob, sounds like it's lacking Boron to me. It should be in Amanda's trace elements suggestion also.
The old rules, Dry/woody inside = lack of boron.
Sour fruit = lacking epsom salts.
Thick skin/pith = lacking Sulphate of Potash.

Try gently removing existing mulch,add 2"new mulch,add 3# 10-5-20 fertilizer,water deeply and spray all foilage with liquid seaweed. Make sure plant is in well drained location and keep moist.When you prune, do not do it too heavily--leave some old growth.

I find passion fruit are very hungry and very thirsty , give them a good hit of ferterlizer when they start flowering , and follow it up .
Water them heaps , the roots of passion fruit are almost as vast as the plant ,so water around the passion fruit too. I sometimes leave the hose on them for half an hour .
I have little rain flower bulbs (crocus?) planted around the area of my passion fruit , as long as they are flowering ,all is good.
Results for me in the last 2 out of 10 years of learning . Now have a vine full of HEAVY tasty passion fruit.
LOTS of WATER and plenty of FOOD and mulch .
Pic::You can see the passion fruit trunk in the corner of the picture and how far I planted the bulbs to monitor the moisture/health .
