The best time to plant a fruit tree was 20 years ago. The next best time to plant one is now.

Nah they taste nothing like Passionfruit lol!. 0% tang. Mostly a mild sweet flavor. Best I can describe it as a creamy papaya with a very slight hint of cocoa. Super interesting fruit though. When it is ripe, the flesh is a spongy pink until you touch it, then it melts in to a bright red cream. You can PM me your order and I can send my paypal info.

Yep itís a vine and a pretty big one at that. It was also very productive and formed perhaps a hundred fruit or so.







Top two are female and the bottom one is male from what I can tell. They are on the same vine and I only have one plant.

Hi Kyle,

Is this vine heat sensitive or wind sensitive like lilikoi?
Killed some lilikoi before because it exposed to wind and hot dry air.

The Passionfruit in its name is what they call it where it comes from but I donít think it is related to them at all. Rather, it is in the cucurbit family.  It seems to be very hardy and drought tolerant in my experience. I have it in a area that receives full direct sun all day as well. Iíd probably protect it when young but once it gets large, seems to be hard to kill. I had a problem with scale for a while that set it back a bit, but after treatment, it came back strong.
