Is this cold hardy?

I ask because:
1) i might want to grow it
2) this is the Temperate, not Tropical, part of the forum  ;D

Got them from San Diego grower. This is not a tropical plant. Prefers dry conditions....grow then in zone 10a.

I got it from a SD grower too, maybe the same one. I donít know about hardiness either since Iíve only grown it here.
Triloba tracker, itís sweeter than incarnata for me. Fruits are kind of tiny, like grape size. Or it could be because I grew it in containers.

That sounds very interesting!  Did you get it from a nursery or other commercial grower?

I would advise against that.
Instead Send a ďmessageĒ via the Forum directly to the users who are requesting the personís contact info.

Thank you, but I'd hate to bug him for a request like this.

Would you mind PM'ing his info to me as well? I'm looking to buy some established passion fruit vines when I relocate to Southern California.
