Passion Fruit

Passiflora edulis

Passion fruit vines produce beautiful purple and white colored flowers followed by sweet, aromatic purple fruits. They are prolific producers and are moderately hardy. Fruits are ideal for juicing or eating fresh. The plant can tolerate light shade but produces more when planted in full sun. Plant in a location with good drainage. Protection from frost is recommended.
