Discover your Passion with this incredible Plant
Climbing to heights of 20 feet each year, the fast growing Passion Fruit plant features a variety of benefits that continue to make it a favorite among enthusiasts. Combining beauty with a unique looking and delicious fruit, the Passion Fruit plant climbs quickly along trellises or fencing. The leathery leaves cover the plant in a glossy green that makes a very good screen. Named for its fragrant, purplish flowers said to resemble the crown of thorns, the incredible blooms are so visually appealing, they resemble the ornate images in a kaleidoscope. Add to that the wonder of the fruit itself. As it makes its transition from green to purple, the Passion Fruit's perfectly round form takes on an almost copper hue. When it ripens, the deep purple color enhances the green leaves for a spectacular show for all to admire.

Refreshing and slightly tart at first, the fruit becomes sweeter, exhibiting more of the complex flavors as it ripens. Although it's perfect for eating fresh off the vine, many fans create their own Passion Fruit dressings, desserts, fresh fruit juices and even culinary classics. All you have to do is hand-pollinate your vine and watch the delicious possibilities emerge!

Whatever your cravings may be, nothing will satisfy them quite like the Passion Fruit. Be sure to order yours today.

Pollination Info

Passion Fruit Vine (Flower) Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, around 6 to 8 hours per day is ideal.

When you're ready to plant, ensure you have well-drained soil and dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Place the plant in the hole and backfill. After planting, be sure to give your Passion Fruit a deep watering for about 5 minutes.

If you're planting in a container, just select a container that's twice the width of your plant's shipped container.

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: Be sure to give your plant a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Passion Fruit during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a fruit specific fertilizer and follow label instructions.
