Hardy passion fruit / maypop
« on: September 11, 2023, 12:57:04 AM »
 Iím curious if anyone from Oregon or the pacific north in general has grown Hardy passion fruit / maypop. Iím hoping to grow some from seeds or if anyone has a nursery they can recommend. Any advice is welcomed.

One green world in Portland has some really great maypop varieties. I got a bluePop from them last year, it flowered a bunch but didn't set fruit.

Iíll have to give them a look , Iím definitely interested in the fruit. Do you know if one variety sets fruit over another?

Judged by the flower, BluePop is probably a hybrid of incarnata and caerulea. These are often sterile and rarely form fruits, and when they do, they are often hollow.
In any case, you need a second variety for pollination to have a chance of fruit.
