I'm definitely interested
How's the fruit ? Do you have pictures of the fruits/flowers ? What's the Latin name ?

Panama Red is awesome. Mildly sour, nice and sweet. Good size fruit, produces great for me.

How are the alata fruits? Has your alata vine fruited yet? Also do you just need one vine?

Not sure. It flowered but no fruit set. Still not that large though.

georgiavines.com is where I get my seeds. Takes some clicking around to get to the full seed list, but it's worth it.

I have a P. alata "Ruby Glow" plant that is over 15 years old and flowers every late summer/fall.  It is fairly mature with a 2.5 inch trunk at the base and over 20 feet covered on a stair railing. In that time it has only produced two fruits that never fully ripened.  After doing some digging around on the internet, I found several articles that say that P alata is self incompatible and that you need another P. alata vine with a different genetic strain to produce fruit.  It seems that there are growers in Florida that have different seedling strains of P. alata and successfully fruit their vines.  I have attempted hand pollination several times with different species of Passiflora and none have worked (including P. x decaisneana, P. alato x caerulea).  I am going to attempt crossing P. alata and P. caerulea this summer since it produces a hybrid P. alato x caerulea.  I have never gotten Georgia Vines P. alata seeds to germinate.  If anyone has some cuttings of seedling started P. alata, let me know.

You can see the difference in fruit sizes. The large one is the Ruby Glow and the small purple one is Frederick.
I hand pollinated the Ruby Glow with pollen from the Frederick and the Purple Incarnata flowers.
Not sure which pollinated which.
The fruits of the Ruby Glow were delicious!

I need an Alata.  I bought one from FruitScapes and one from Top Tropicals. I am afraid they are coming from the same source... Do you think it would work to pollinate them with Quadranqularis?  Would Nitida need protection in winter in Bradenton, FL?

Thanks

Nice job getting the fruit to set.  I tried Possum Purple pollen on the P. alata and had no luck.  I have a Frederick coming into bloom this year and will try that as well as P. macrocarpa if it blooms.

P. alata crossed with P. quadrangularis make a viable hybrid P. x decaisneana, so I would think they should set fruit using pollen of one to pollinate the other.

Thank you Bob! What is the best way to pollinate them? Using a brush or just a finger..?

To pollinate my quadrangularis I pinch off the anthers and slide them across the stigmas

I use a small paint brush to pollinate, but you can use the anther as Jabomano suggested.  As long as you can collect the pollen and then transfer it to the stigma successfully, then you should be fine.
