Why is my Giant Granadilla flower petals not showing color?
« on: February 13, 2023, 10:19:27 PM »
I have a Giant Granadilla that is flowering but the petals donít have that purple/ pinkish color that you see here: https://www.australianseed.com/shop/item/passionfruit-giant-granadilla
Any ideas why?

You probably got a hybrid or variation, but hard to say. Looks a lot like the flowers on the giant granadilla we grew a while back, don't think it was red either.

Thanks. I was kind of worried if may be that; after looking at the followers again, they do look different in other ways. If thatís the case, Iíll find out soon.

Seedlings don't come true but will be some sort of hybrid could be better or the other way. Nice plant either way cuttings from known variety is only way to get true species.

No need to worry, my edulis from seed makes the typical white flowers but pigmented with purple as well as the anthers. Basically what everyone else is saying, seed grown variation perhaps. The fruit is still just as good

This was actually a cutting but I donít know if the original seller grew it from seed. The leaves do look like GG but weíll see.
