I have one mature tree and it bore good last year and is holding well this year. Black/purple fruit is easy to see & judge ripening.
Skin is very thin so I began eating it. tatse was good when well ripened. Remind me and you can come sample it is a fairly early season type July-August last year.
here was July 1st last year;

Thank you.  Will do, I plan on heading out that way during mango season.

It looks a lot like an "unknown" avocado that I have. 

Did you want a yellow passionfruit vine when I head that way?

Thanks I'm satisfied with the purple passionfruit I've been growing, very good production & taste.
