Passionfruit - Passiflora Foetida Red

    7 responses

Farouk starts with ...
Hello All,

I have purchased some Red Passiflora Foetida seeds & wondering if anyone has any experience with this variety of Passionfruit ?

I am wondering if the skin is edible & also if you can describe the taste a little ?

Any growing instructions/seed germination tips would be a great help .

Thank you
Regards, Farouk

I have the yellow/orange variety naturalising itself here, and if you soak the seed overnight prior to sowing you should get some to germinate, however spring is probably the most ideal time to get them started. I like the flavour, reminds me more of a complex banana rather than a passionfruit, however the skin is quite tough and they are best squeezed and emptied into the mouth while you're gardening - even here in the subtopics they died off over winter.

Hello Phil,

Thank you for the details that's very nice, sounds like it has an interesting taste, I have got a tiny lil one sprouted now & has about 5 small leaves on it.

When you say it dies off in winter, does that mean you need to reseed it or does it shoot up again in Spring ?

I think it dies off completely but as it is so prolific there are bound to be fruit which drop and sprout the following season.

Hello Phil, how are you doing, hows spring over in Murwillumbah ? I have the same plant that sprouted in Feb 2017 this year & it survived the winter I had it in a tiny side yard in a small pot on top of concreted floor & surrounded with colourbond fencing, I wonder if it was protected by this from major frost ?

I planted it near the fence now in spring so it can climb it & meet with its other friends the Panama Gold & Banana Passion fruit, it's taken off & got mature larger leaves now, it's putting on beautiful healthy growth.

I hope you enjoy the fruit, they are very prolific in their second season and you should have them forever once they start dropping. They taste different to regular passionfruit, I'll be interested in your opinion.

Hello my friend, plenty of flowers now but they just develop open & drop no fruit set yet. Still a small vine with many flowers.

Sure would be happy to let you know as soon as I get some fruit, soon I hope!

I'll post a photo for the history books soon.

For now this is what it looked like 18/2/2017
