A great starting fruit, to grow in humid climates.
this is a very fast-growing species, the fruit is very delectable. My first crop this year , Only produced about 10 fruit. I had to pollinate by hand mostly, but it worked out great. This purple passion fruit does grow very rapidly in hot humid areas. A training method of wall trellis system and T bar trellis will actually help substantially. A constant training is needed for this vine, since it does grow very rapidly. A very good purple passion fruit to grow, and it is very beautiful in its flower production. The fruit is in medium size a little bit smaller than a baseball. The fruit is very good with cakes and other pastries. All you have to do is scoop out the inside of the purple passion fruit, and place the contents on your pastry. lovely tropical flavor with, just a slight tartness.
fruit harvest colors, variants to green and purple.

Great plant update
I bought a purple possum passion vine last spring and plant it in a pot with an obelisk
I got few flowers and one fruit last fall. I had to bring it indoors in December. The fruit was green that time and it riped in the house near a sunny window. It was the size of a small egg and it was delicious. I am expecting more this year. Thanks to F G T

Absolute gorgeous plant, it arrived healthy, and it stayed healthy. I am waiting for the fruit to ripen.
This is the best plant I bought from fast growing trees. It is as tall as I am and I did not even have it a half a year. There is already some fruit developing. It has absolutely beautiful blossoms. We in Missouri have difficult soil and difficult weather this is the most uncomplicated and beautiful plant, I have to bring it in sides during the winter because I am not sure if it would survive. I am very happy about this beautiful plant. And at this time I have it in a big flower pot.

South facing is best
When we first got our vine it arrived in very good condition in April. We put it in a coconut basket and put in on our privacy fence until July. It started yellowing from the west facing fence so we decided to put up a small patio fence that is south facing and it IMMIDEATLY took off growing. It has reached 12 feet and is continuing to stretch out. It's now mid October and it is starting to produce buds. The main vine at the ground has reached the diameter of a sharpie and it produces broad, green, shiny leaves. It will reach out towards different items that are nearby and try to attach itself without trying to guide it. I'm confident that it will produce quite a bit of passion fruit next year!
We planted it by our south facing patio along a fence in July. Its over 12' now!!!
It has started blooming now in mid October. This plant is very healthy!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Passion Fruit Vine (Flower)

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Passion Fruit Vine (Flower).

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Passion Fruit Vine (Flower) gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Passion Fruit Vine (Flower) again after the transplant is complete.

Do I need more than one plant to get fruit?
Nanette B on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have only 1 plant but was able to help it pollinate. We picked off the oval down-facing parts in the middle of the flower with their yellow powders on them, and gently rub those yellow powders onto the tips of several horn-like arms on the flower, and voila`! Fruits! Good luck.

I live in Connecticut, can I grow this tree outdoor?
Mai L on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Connecticut is listed as growing zone 5 and 6. Passion fruit vines are recommended for zones 6-10, so it might grow in Connecticut, but maybe not as well as if it were further south.

I live in NC (zone 8) and bought 1 vine last spring. It grew to at least 20 feet by autumn (up a 8 foot pergola and 12-16 feet spreading across the top) with more than 50 fruit. Make sure you have plenty of room for it to grow and climb with opportunities for the tendrils to wrap around and latch onto.

What's the minumum temperature for this vine? Can it really be grown in a zone 6?
Ashley M on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No Ashley, it wont. I bought mine last year and it did not survive the winter. I even put mulch around it and cover it but did not survive. And the winter this year was very mild. We almost got no snow.
I live in growing zone 7 .Should I plant it in a pot to be overwintered indoor? or just in ground still be ok?
Chiungmei W on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Although I purchased this vine six months ago, and I also live in zone 7a, I have not made up my mind yet about this issue. So far, I have chosen to grow it in a really large pot with trellis support in the pot (7 ft.) and will take it inside for the winter. When the central stem thickens up a bit by the end of next summer, I might risk it and put it in a very sheltered southern facing side of my house. So, not sure yet. This first year I had three fruits from it that were delicious, but had been attacked by fruit fly, so that is another issue.
I bought 7 passion fruit vines from you and so far, I have never seen fruit. The flowers seem only to last 1 day then close and drop off. Is there something I'm missing about the fruit? As for as pollen, I see the backs of the yellow on part of the flower but no pollen. Are there male and female plants? There seems no pollen on the backs of the part in the answered questions but no pollen on mine. Could rain wash it off? Even when I open the bud of the plant I see no pollen.
ROCP44 on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It looks like you have not had them quite a year yet. I would wait until next spring and you should see some then.
when does it produce fruit ?
Shirley R on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I received and planted my passion fruit vine mid/late April and noticed my first plum sized fruit this week (2 months later). The original main vine is over 10 feet tall, and there are several more secondary vines 3-5 feet tall and still growing!
how far apart do I plant them?
Jenny W on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I only bought one, and at the rate it is growing, I would think 6 feet apart would give each plant plenty of vining room. If you have a 6 foot tall trellis and can train each plant up, you might be able to do 4 foot apart. I like to let my plants have a little breathing room, so air can get thru and around to keep down any mold or fungus problems, in geneal.
I have a passion plant with tons of fruit but the fruit is empty, what do I need to do ?
judy g on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If bees are scarce you may have to try some hand pollination. Its as easy as taking a finger or paint brush and give each flower a swipe from one to the other. Also make sure they are getting plenty of water.
Can you ship to California?
Cham Y on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes we can ship it into the state of California.
I'm in zone 6 and I'm wondering about growing these in a pot, and if so should they be overwintered in the garage? Or, do they need their old growths for producing fruit? (I think I read that only new growth produces fruit.) Thank you!
Michelle A on Apr 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am in zone 9 and I have not planted my passion fruit yet. It's been a year in the pot it came in. It has totes into the ground. The winter here in central Florida was very mild. It did drop some leaves but not all of them. I have cut it back twice. It flowers once but no fruit. I know that doesn't answer your question but it is my experience so far.
