We are selling passiflora decaisneana and passiflora quadrangularis ML (PQML) cuttings (only in U.S). 

Passiflora decaisneana (P. quadrangularis X P. alata): $2 per cutting (3 nodes) + shipping (minimun 5 cuttings)
Passiflora quadrangularis ML (P. quadrangularis X P. decaisneana) : $3 per cutting (3 nodes) + shipping (minimun 5 cuttings)

First class mail shipping charge = $5.00

The vines are growing in San Jose, CA (9b).  If you are below 9b, you have to have a greenhouse; otherwise, they will die in winter.  For pollination, use its own pollen.  You can cross these two passilforas together.  For grafting, you can graft them on other passifloras.  One of the member here grafted P. decaisneana on P. edulis successfully, and he got fruits this year.

Note: P. quadrangularis ML is a new variety.  The taste is the same as P. decaisneana but the fruit is 3x bigger.

Hi Beicadad,

That is great.  You got 23 fruits first year.  I don't have many fruits this year because I didn't have time to care for it.

Yes, you are the person who grafted P. decaisneana on P. edulis successfully.  Thank you very much for the recommendation.

Great cuttings, and much larger than I had imagined!  Trying to just root them all, but maybe I'll try grafting them onto other vines one day.  Very curious how they will compare in taste to purples.

The passiflora decaisneana cuttings and fruit were great from this seller a while ago. The vine still alive and looking good own its own roots. Coming back for the ML cuttings!

The purples passion fruits growing in U.S are sweet and sour.  Some passion fruits are very sour such as Frederick and yellow P. edulis.  Some P. edulis from Australia have more sweet than sour.  P. decaisneana fruits are mostly sweet.

NissanVersa,

Because of the Covid-19, I didn't buy steer manure at the right time.  Therefore, I don't have many fruits to sell this year.  Thank you for putting good words for me. 

Did you get a lot of flowers of P. decaisneana this year?  To get excellent fruits, you need to give steer manure as temperature gets warm and try to get flowers in June and July.  After 3 months, the fruits will be harvested in September to November.  If the fruits are ripe in winter, the fragrance reduces a lot.

Hi Pandan,

Yes, you can pick both as long as the minimum cuttings is 5.  Please order through PM.  I will ship every Monday or Tuesday.

P. quadrangularis ML (PQML) is better than original P. quadrangularis.  The rind ofPQML is sweeter and the arils has strong fragrance.  I added some of the pictures of PQML taken yesterday in the main post when I ate the fruit.  It has a lot more flesh of the rind than P. decaisneana.

Try to get PQML to fruit.  It has an excellent taste, same as P. decaisneana.  It is very difficult to get the flesh of P. decaisneana's rind. Some people just eat the arils of the fruit and throw away the rind.  The rind of PQML is thick, like P. quadrangularis.

Update shipping method, remove the priority mail.  The small box can't hold 3 nodes cutting.

Hi Beicadad,

I overlooked your picture.  Today I checked it carefully.  It was amazing you got so many fruit in small vine in first year of growing the vine.  I saw some of the fruits are almost ready to eat.  Please tell me how they taste when you eat them.

You grafted it on Frederick.  Is the Frederick in ground or in pot?  Please post the picture at the base of the Frederick.  I noticed you still kept Frederick.  What is the reason to keep it?  Can you post the picture at the join (graft) between the P. decaisneana and Frederick? Thanks.

Check out the graft union above. You can see that the Graft is square and the rootstock is round. The  graft union healed pretty well.

Itís in a poor spot in ground. I harvested 3 fruits and Itís holding 20 more fruits. Fruits are pretty tasty. I canít wait to get PDML grafts to take and fruit next year.

The other PF variety I grafted onto Fredrick is purple possum. Fredrick is a good variety but itís too tart for my climate.

Hi Beicadad,
The wood covered the upper graft.  I could not see the square stem of P. decaisneana.  I hope you will fruit P. quadrangularis ML (PQML).   It is better than P. quadrangularis.

If you look at the first pic, you can see the edge of the P. decaisneana above the graft union.

Thank you very much for the pictures.  Is it the cleft graft you used?

This was side veneer, which worked well for my passion fruit vines.
