Pollination Info

Frederick Passion Fruit Vine Pollination

Frederick Passion Fruit Vines are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Frederick Passion Fruit Vine will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: To plant a passion fruit plant, dig a hole about 2-3 feet in diameter in an area with full sun or partial shade and backfill it with native soil. Add amendments for drainage if the soil is clay-like. Set the plant at the same depth as it was in the pot, cover the roots with soil, and press firmly to remove air pockets. Water thoroughly after planting and cover the soil with mulch or compost to retain moisture. Passion fruit plants should be spaced 10-12 feet apart and can be kept smaller with pruning. It's recommended to plant them next to a wall or trellis for support.

Note: This product grows best in well-draining soil. When you receive your plant, you may notice small, white beads or rocks in the soil - this medium is added to increase drainage and keep your plant happy and healthy! 

2. Watering: Keeping the soil moist when the plant produces fruit is crucial, whereas moderate watering is sufficient otherwise.

3. Fertilizing: Passion fruit plants need regular fertilization with a good 10-5-20 NPK fertilizer, applied at 3 pounds per plant, four times a year. Avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers to promote fruit growth. Sandy loam with 6.5—7.5 pH and organic-rich soil is best. Mulching around the plant base is also recommended.

FGT Pro Tip: During or after fruiting your plant may experience yellowing leaves due to an iron deficiency. Give it a boost with an iron-rich fertilizer to fix this issue.

4. Pruning: Passion fruits are a vigorous plant that requires regular pruning to keep them manageable.

5. Pollination: Since this plant is self-fertile, you won't need to add other varieties.
