Exotic, Cold-Hardy and Unique Passion Fruit Vine!
Why Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vines?
Grow your own exotic passion fruit from home with the Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine! This evergreen fruiting vine, named after a master gardener in Santa Clara County, is cold hardy down to 25℉ and continues to grow year-round even in cooler temperatures, unlike most passion fruit vines.
The Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine is a continual bloomer spring through summer, displaying impressive green, white, and purple flowers. Unlike the standard passion fruit vine, the blooms of the Nancy Garrison are curled, and are more for show than fragrance.
After enjoying the Nancy Garrison’s beautiful display of blooms, you'll reap a bountiful harvest of fresh, exotic passion fruit starting in the late summer and into fall. The Nancy Garrison produces fruit that resembles an egg in size and shape, with a purple rind, orange flesh, and crunchy seeds. While the seeds are edible, the rind is not - simply scoop out the pulp and seeds with a spoon.
The Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit is tart and sweet in taste, with notes of orange flavor. You’ll know the fruit is ready for picking when the skin is purple throughout with slight dimples, and detaches easily from the vine. Your Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit will continue to ripen off the vine, and is good for about a week when kept in the fridge.
An added benefit of the Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine? It can produce fruit even in a container! Simply place it in a spot on your patio that receives full sun, in a pot with well-draining soil. Otherwise, an arbor or trellis will be useful for the vine to hold onto as it grows.
Don’t wait - grab your Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine today and start enjoying the benefits of this exotic evergreen!
Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine Pollination
Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vines are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Nancy Garrison Passion Fruit Vine will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, around 6 to 8 hours per day is ideal. When you're ready to plant, ensure you have well-drained soil and dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
Place the plant in the hole and backfill. After planting, be sure to give your Passion Fruit a deep watering for about 5 minutes. If you're planting in a container, just select a container that's twice the width of your plant's shipped container and provide a structure for your vine to climb. We recommend a sturdy structure as this vine can be heavy once in bloom with fruit on it.
2. Watering: Be sure to give your plant a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Passion Fruit during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a fruit-specific fertilizer and follow label instructions.
FGT Pro Tip: During or after fruiting your plant may experience yellowing leaves due to an iron deficiency. Give it a boost with an iron-rich fertilizer to fix this issue.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
