Kylie , thanks again for the lovely plants. I was wondering how long it takes fruit to ripen on passiflora panama red ? I presume I can keep it going next to a sunny window for the winter. I guess I'll need to build a frame to support the vine come late Spring when it goes out for the season.
After growing so many green tropicals this year I'm looking forward to more flowers and colour next year , the Brugs and Pasiflora will sure help with that.
Best Wishes
Steve

Default Re: Passion fruit ripening.

I don't know if all varieties ripen in the same length of time, but here is my experience with a store-bought passionfruit.
Bought fruit in January.
Planted seeds on february 5th.


Seedling, after a few weeks


Flowering, in September.


Small fruit in October.


Ripe fruit in December.

Once the vines are established - they fruit twice a year in June and December. Mine (passiflora edulis flavicarpa) started to set fruit in late October and will be ripe in December. They set fruit over quite an extended period too.

Thanks for the replies. My Only experience with Passiflora is
Passiflora caerulea , which I grew from seed. It was totally hardy in Northern France and took three seasons to get going , but in the third season there were hundreds of flowers and fruit. Kylie has sent me a very good rooted cutting of Pamama Red and it is growing next to a window at the moment. I have high hopes for fruit next Summer.
Thanks again
Later
Steve

Steve - Passiflora caerulea is extremely hardy - never had one croak even after being in snow and hard frost.

john_ny - edulis is the purple fruited one and flavicarpa has the yellow fruit. Flavicarpa has been grown more commercially recently as it is more resistant to disease, but in Africa in the 60's it was all edulis. Went back there about 5 years ago and it was all yellow fruits - hardly a purple one to be seen.
