Yellow, oval-shaped passion fruit with bright yellow skin and orange pulp. The pulp is edible and very tasty. Often used in juice making.
Generally subtropical to tropical. Extremely fast-growing vine in where temperatures stay above 28 °C. Usually found in the Andes at elevations of 6000-7000ft. Vines usually produce by the second year and can yield up to 300 fruits a vine when in full production. Beautiful red-pink flowers are borne at the ends of a long stalk. Flowers may attract hummingbirds. Fruits can ripen year-round.
Hardy to the mid 20°C. May defoliate or die back in colder areas but will regrow from roots.
Flourishes in subtropical and warm-temperate regions. In the tropics, the vine generally does best at higher elevations, though it can be grown anywhere.
IMPORTANT: Growing Information
It is recommended to pre-treat seeds before planting. They contain a hard seed coat and are very slow to sprout. There are various pretreatment methods, but the simplest is to soak the seeds for 24-48 hours in warm to the touch water, just prior to planting. Optionally, seeds can be lightly scarified with sandpaper to provide some permeation on the seed coat. Once pretreated, plant seeds 15-20mm deep in moist, sterile soil. Keep soil temperature consistent at 21-28°C, with some day/variation in this range. Cool soils will significantly delay seed germination time if not inhibit germination altogether. Standard room temperature can be too cool for proper germination.
A propagation sticker will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.
