Customer Comments on Passionfruit
Passsion fruits are really nice to eat and there healthy for you | Brooke Lee Tulloch - Parafield Gardens, SA 15-May-2006
All passionfruit are vigorous vines, needing heavy feeding and good water. They all love full sun and warmth. The more tropical, larger varieties may not have sufficient time to mature fruit properly in cooler climes. They're all worth a try though. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 03-Jun-2006
When Planting A Passionfruit Buy a Beef liver form the Butcher and Put it in the hole with the passionfruit on top. It provides extra Nutrients to the plant. | Mellissa Preusker - Adelaide, SA 20-Jan-2007
Varieties I've tried recently. Panama yellow is in-edibly sour, red panama is sweeter, edible, but far behind a standard black like misty gem in fragrance and flavour. the new pink skinned super sweet av1 beats all the standard blacks. | Mal - Toowoomba, QLD 13-Mar-2007
Passionfruit - Sweet Granadilla (P. ligularis)
My grafted sweet granadilla didnt get any fruit by hand fertilizing. I tried all different times during the day. Nothing worked so i tried at night & havent looked back. Heaps of fruit growing now. Nearly every flower grows a fruit now. Delicious | Todd - Blacktown, NSW 12-Apr-2007
BORON - Bought as Borax. If you are frustrated by fruiting issues, add Boron. | Owen Burns - Eungella, QLD 15-Feb-2008
Passion Granadilla x Lilikoi
Flowers are absolutely magnificent - am hoping for fruit following hand pollination | Carole Kellow - Park, QLD 12-May-2008
Always be careful when picking wild or ornamental passionfruits, as many species are highly toxic with cyanide. | Alasdair - Sydney, NSW 24-Dec-2014
"Ornamental" passiflora, like the Blue Passionflower, P. caerulea, are edible although lack sugar and are best eaten in a fruit salad with tastier fruits. They are highly nutritious. | Nick - Adelaide, SA 27-Dec-2016
