We are selling passiflora decaisneana fruits.  Minimum is 2lbs.  We ship with medium flat rate box. The Vine is located in San Jose (9b).  Passiflora decaisneana is the hybrid of passiflora quadrangularis (giant granadilla) and passiflora alata.  Its rind is edible.  The arils are sweet (a little sour), excellent taste.  PM me if you are interested.  Price: $8/lb.

(Update "Pending") we are home growers.  The fruits may run out.  Those people already paid me.  I will ship on Monday or Tuesday.  For those people who PMed and ordered,  I will go by order "First come first serverd".  We only ship in U.S.  Thank you very much.

Fruits are sold out.

Hoang,

Thank you for the healthy cuttings. The fruit tastes very sweet, and it has no sour taste like most passion fruits I have eaten. Very different taste, never had one like these. I would say it's the best tasting passion fruit that I have had.

The fruits were sold out.  Now I am only selling cuttings.  $2 per cutting.  Minimum is 5 cuttings.  I will ship in U.S only by small flat rate box.

$2 * 5 = $10 plus $7.90 (small flat rate box).  The total is $17.90

Hi Kevin,

I PMed you before I read your response here.  I am happy that you like the cuttings.  I hope you can root them.  I believe I gave you instruction how to root in PM.

Hi Brian,

The fruit is combination of the two good passiflora types (fragrant granadilla and giant granadilla).  Just for reference, In order to get the fruit, we have to hand-pollinate (HP) its flowers.  I am not sure you need to HP in your area.

I received the fruits and cuttings. The fruits are very sweet for passion fruits with excellent flavor. The cuttings are heathy too. Thanks Hoang!

The only drawback seems to be relatively small amount of juice for its large size. The rind is very thick and the juice doesnít occupy the entire internal space (based on three fruits I sampled). I will try the rest to find out if they are the same. But its superior taste more than makes up for it.

I got some purple possum passion fruit from my container vine before it died. Though the fruits were not fully ripe (still mostly green before the vine died), after sitting on counter for a week the flavor is also excellent. With right balance of sweetness and slight tartness, as well as a strong fragrant taste, itís also a top variety for me. Fortunately I saved some cuttings before the mother plant died and I am growing the cuttings now.

Thank you for honest feedback.  The rind of this fruit is edible.  The rind is similar of the rind passiflora quadrangularis.  There are several videos on YouTube that show how to eat passiflora quadrangularis.

I'm curious if your cultivar is "Purple Tiger" or if it's a different P. x decaisneana variety.

Hey Hoang! Wanted to see if you have any cuttings available. I used to live in San Jose, now in Santa Barbara growing different tropical fruits. Do you have 10 for purchase? Look forward to hearing back from you,

Julian

Thanks.  Did you do the cross pollination yourself to produce the plant or did you get it from somewhere?
