Passionfruit leaves yellowing intermittently

    4 responses

Hi all
My passionfruit is growing beautifully... Almost 5m in under a year. But in the last few months random leaves have starting turning yellow, mainly at the base of the plant, but also a few further up. Any advice much appreciated
Cheers

Hi Mick

Might be the result of the weather starting to cool down and the days becoming shorter hence the shedding of some leaves especially the older ones. They are known to look crappy during winter as well. another thing to remember, older leaves will not last forever. They will wither and die sooner or later. That's nature at work. They will recover well next spring and summer though.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi mickh,

Passionfruit- Panama or similiar are more tropical than the black, thus you will see many leaves turn yellow in April-August in Melbourne, which is normal. However, in Oct-Mar the yellow leaves are usually caused by a lack of iron and nitrogen in the soil. Reduce watering in winter to avoid the roots rot. Cheers
