The one passionfruit I grow successfully is probably gracilis - it produces grape-like fruit with little flavor and is a weed in my greenhouse. If you want seeds from either, I can collect next month. I buy from Logee's greenhouse in CT, which has quite reasonable prices. If anyone wants to contact me - I'm rbove@wcupa.edu.
I grow everything I can get my hands on.I have two edulis Frederick and two edulis edulis and 25 other varieties.Now I want to try hybridizing and Incarnata is a good one for this. Let me know when your seed are ready and we can trade.Or I'll contact you .
