Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Frederick Passion Fruit is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Passiflora ssp

Exotic purple and white flowers turn to 2"- 3" deep purple fruit with aromatic orange flesh. Because the flesh has so many seeds, it is best used as strained pulp or for juice. An added bonus is that Passion fruit is a host plant for the Gulf Fritillary butterfly.

Planting & Care

Passion fruit vines are among the most rewarding of edible plants. Not only do they produce tropical, guava-like fruits, but they also boast flowers of exotic sculptural beauty. Passion fruit prefers nutrient-rich, well-drained soil in full sun. In very hot climates, place the vine where it will get afternoon shade. Water the soil around the vine at least once a week, and more frequently during dry spells. Mulch to keep the soil moist throughout the fruiting season. Passion fruit vines are heavy feeders, use a blend that is highest in potassium, 10-5-20, four times a year. Passion fruit vines are very heavy producers and require support from a substantial trellis.
