I have several seedlings available and shipping via priority mail is included. $25.99. Payment can be made through Paypal and Venmo.

You will be receiving 2 small Passion Fruit Granadilla vine seedlings planted in the same pot. Plants now are few inches taller than when the pictures were taken last week. The size of the pot is 2.5X3.5 inches.

This vigorous Passion Flower vine is one that is grown for its edible fruit, sweet granadilla.

The fruit is 3” long. It is ripe when the color is orange-yellow & has white dots on the rind.

The fruit can be eaten right out of the shell or the juice can be strained & sipped as a refreshing drink.

The vine will grow to about 14’, maybe more & has very large, green leaves.

The flowers are very ornamental. They have whitish green petals & many, many purple and white filaments.

They have a sweet & musky scent. Native to Central & South America.

How do they handle the cold? I'm in 9b and I have 5 seedlings - one will be going outside once it grows a few more inches.

I've read they do better in part sun but anyone have any success in full sun?

No full sun and the humidity literally cook them down here. They did better here in South Florida in full sun during our “winter” when we have cooler temps and hardly any humidity. From what I was told, they are cultivated in the high mountains of South America (Columbia is where the one I am referring to originated) where the majority of temperature is drastically cooler

They can't even handle full sun in a coastal Northern California climate -- I nearly killed them from wind and sun during the "summer" of 72 F degree highs and 55 F degree lows.  They do great in afternoon shade with wind protection.

Passiflora ligularis makes a great tasting fruit, but unfortunately it doesn’t handle well Florida heat.

Are these seedlings from seed or rooted cuttings? I was really hoping cuttings as they fruit a lot quicker than seedlings. If they are seedlings, how long until they bare fruit?

Now I'm afraid to move mine outside. I'm north of sacramento so I get a few frost days in the winter and we break 110 in the summer. :(

Funny, because I collected the seeds from a Vine growing in Costa Rica.

They're seedlings. My guess is 12-18 months.

Are these seedlings from seed or rooted cuttings? I was really hoping cuttings as they fruit a lot quicker than seedlings. If they are seedlings, how long until they bare fruit?
