Need ID -Passion Fruit
« on: June 10, 2019, 02:59:35 AM »
Can anyone help identify this passion fruit vine that I purchased about 3 years ago on ebay. Can't remember the variety, the fruit is big, purple and some shaped like an egg and a few that are round (see photos).

Here's some photos of the fruits on the vine.

If anyone is interested in buying scion, I can sell it for $1/cutting plus shipping. Plant grows very fast, stem is large (main branch about 3/4" now).

Thanks.

If it was a small tc when you got it my guess would be Possum Purple. It seems to be the most common variety that's available online.

It's not Possum Purple. PP is dark purple, and turns red when ripe. At least that's what mine does.

Looks more similar to Panama Red.
