Passionfruit flowering but not fruiting

    3 responses

Tony29 starts with ...
HI, my passionfruit looks very healthy with plenty of foliage and plenty of flowers. The problem is when the flowers start to close before forming fruit they turn a reddish colour then wither and die. I have not had even one flower turn to fruit. Any ideas what the problem might be? Please look at the attached picture.
Thank You

I had a similar problem with no fruit set and observed that bees were not visiting the flowers. Things changed when a family of blue faced honey eaters took up residence and found the flowers irresistible, thus taking care of pollination.

I have the same issue with a 2 year old nelly kelly black, I just assume its a dud and will rip it out if nothing sets this summer.
I have a pandora down the back yard giving around 30 fruit each year.

Tony, have you considered hand pollination. Take one of the pollen loaded bits and rub it over the face of other bits.Try and do it when the flower is at its peak. Too early and the pollen will still not have powdered and too late it will have hardened. This can also be achieved by using a small soft clean artists brush to transfer the pollen. Good luck
