Berry Plants - Passionfruit Vine

Passionfruit Vine

Passionfruit Vine – Many Tropical Flavors in One Fruit!
Passionfruit is loved worldwide for its unique, sweet to sweet-tart, tropical flavor whether eaten fresh, juiced, or jellied. It’s flavor has been likened to a mix of mango, guava, papaya, and pineapple. While the purple passionfruit is native to southern Brazil, Paraguay and northern Chile; the yellow passionfruit origin is unknown as it may have come from the Amazon area of Brazil or may be a hybrid – it’s a mystery! All passionfruit vines are rampant growers so give them lots of room. They grow well on a trellis, fence or arbor. Some varieties are host and nectar plants for butterflies and all will produce gorgeous flowers before setting fruit. Passionfruit vines are frost tender so choose your location wisely with lots of sun. While drought tolerant, regular watering is required for good fruit set and fruit quality. Fruit is ripe when fully colored or has fallen off the vine. Even a little shrivelled is okay!.

From the frilly purple and white flowers to the large purple fruit, passionfruit vines are a delight in the garden or large container.
