Incredible Purple Flowers with Refreshing Fruit

Here's why you'll love the Passion Fruit:

  • Beautiful, climbing plant with incredible purple flowers
  • Vigorous grower achieving 20 feet of annual growth
  • Gorgeous purple fruit with refreshing tart flavor
  • Versatile plant makes an excellent fence screen

Discover your Passion with this incredible Plant
Climbing to heights of 20 feet each year, the fast growing Passion Fruit plant features a variety of benefits that continue to make it a favorite among enthusiasts. Combining beauty with a unique looking and delicious fruit, the Passion Fruit plant climbs quickly along trellises or fencing. The leathery leaves cover the plant in a glossy green that makes a very good screen. Named for its fragrant, purplish flowers said to resemble the crown of thorns, the incredible blooms are so visually appealing, they resemble the ornate images in a kaleidoscope. Add to that the wonder of the fruit itself. As it makes its transition from green to purple, the Passion Fruit's perfectly round form takes on an almost copper hue. When it ripens, the deep purple color enhances the green leaves for a spectacular show for all to admire.

Passion Fruit Looks and Tastes Like No Other
Chances are, if you roam your neighborhood market in search of a Passion Fruit you'll come out disappointed. Now, with the ability to grow this rare gem in your own garden, you'll be able to appreciate a fruit that includes all the wonderful flavors of some of the most satisfying fruit in the world. Combining hints of guava, papaya, pineapple, mango and citrus, the Passion Fruit is one of the most aromatic and flavorful fruits imaginable. With some varieties growing as large as grapefruits, the inner pulp is as unique looking as it tastes. Refreshing and slightly tart at first, the fruit becomes sweeter, exhibiting more of the complex flavors as it ripens. Although it's perfect for eating fresh off the vine, many fans create their own Passion Fruit dressings, desserts, fresh fruit juices and even culinary classics like Monkfish with Passion Fruit sauce.

Whatever your cravings may be, nothing will satisfy them quite like the Passion Fruit. Be sure to order yours today.

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 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.

Ashley M on Jun 22, 2016

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 live in a Growing Zone: 7. When is best time to plant this? thank you.
OlgaS on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Spring/Fall is a great time for planting.

Cham Y on Aug 7, 2016
