How To Grow Passion Fruit

  • Last year I tried to grow passion fruit because OMGGG I love them ! . But they died in winter because I planted them too late.

    The seeds need to be planted in the spring because any earlier they will be too cold an any later they will be to small next winter and will freeze.

    I brought a couple of fruits, and cut one in half (scoffed down one side) and pulled out ten seed pockets. I cleaned them throughly

  • There is a few more than ten because better safe than sorry (if that applies :S )

  • Then plant the seeds about a finger width apart in a large plant pot.

    To do this fill a large pot with compost (DO NOT use fertiliser) and poke your finger in the compost, one time for each seed, up to your fingernail base. Place each seed in each hole and sprinkle some compost on top but don't firm it down.

    Then place a plastic food bag over the top - make sure it has no holes in it. This will act like a green houses and will also water the plants enough for them to grow but not enough to flood them - do not water them.

  • Once most of the shoots have grown through, while the other ones are not likely to they could. Move the seedlings to smaller pots, place three or four seedling per pot. Keep these in direct sun light - window sills are the perfect place, not outside. These don't need to be covered with a bag

    When these have grown about ten inches, they are ready to be moved outside. They should be placed in direct sunlight. These will then keep growing for about two three years.

  • These tips may help:

    The grow by climbing so a trellis would be useful

    Can grow up to 20ft in a year

    A year or so after planting, trim the rotting vines off

    Do not eat the vines of flowers

    Red ones are rotten but you can eat the others even if they have fallen off the vine

    DO NOT EAT YELLOW FRIUTS

    Should be in sun at least 6 hours a day

    Prune after the plant fruits for the first time

    Use compost not fertiliser

    Not all seeds will germinate

    Water frequently

    Should have a good drainage system

  • Plus the flowers are damn gorgeous
