Passionfruit crosspollination
« on: March 22, 2019, 05:39:08 PM »
Hi all,
I have a question. If two different Passionfruit varieties are planted on the same  Trellis how will this affect fruit procuction_

Thanks for advicing on this one,

Do you know what species you have?
For example, many varieties of P.edulis are self pollinating.

Cross pollination shouldn't affect the fruit.  If you plant out the resultant seeds you might get something interesting.
