Looking for Passion Fruit Cuttings
« on: April 12, 2019, 05:18:18 PM »
I am looking to buy 30 or 40 passion fruit cuttings. Looking for just about any besides Frederick, Banana and Giant Granadilla. Want Panama Red for sure.

I haven't found any source for Panama Red or similar Australian cuttings in the U.S., so if you find a source I'd be interested as well.

I have panama red growing on my fence line.
It seems to be pretty easy to find down here, and it's delicious. Also self-fertile
Hows Banana passionfruit?

Do you have any pictures or the fruit ? I have been thinking about getting one myself.  I have banana but it's a seedling, sweet grandilla is a must have .

The season just ended but it is flowering now.
I'll take a picture of the fruit and flower.
I might have a straggler in the house. Basically looks like the red rover you posted. Different flower IIRC
Interested in the Sweet Granadilla though.
PM me if you want to trade

How is the flavor of Panama Red, for those of you growing it in Florida -- is it really sweet (like the Australian one supposedly is)?

I'm growing mine on my fence line.


This is the first year I'm getting a good crop from it, the caterpillars would never let it attain much size
I've had some that were 90% and 10% sour, personally, it felt kind of wrong without a decent sour note but still enjoyed it.
Due to time restraints, I would pick them once a week so I would get a few that were particularly sweet and the remaining of a would be like 60/40. (that's sort of my cut off point where I don't want them anymore sour)
If you had the time to pick it completely ripe or a vertical system that made it easier to see everything I'd think they'd be consistently sweet.
With that said it's by far the best-tasting passion fruit I've had.


For reference, To my taste buds, the normal yellow and purple ones I get are mostly sour with a hint of sweet. Maybe like a 40/60 at best

Interesting, how big are those fruits?  (I'm just wondering the scale.)
