Common questions about growing Passionfruit

1. How quickly does passion fruit grow?

Passion fruit vines grow relatively quickly, reaching up to 6 meters (20 feet) in one year under favourable conditions. However, the rate of growth can vary depending on several factors, including:

On average, passion fruit vines take about 12 to 18 months to produce fruit from the time they are planted. However, with good care and favourable growing conditions, they can start fruiting as early as 8 months.

2. What is the best season to plant passionfruit?

The best time to plant passionfruit depends on your climate and the type of passionfruit you are planting. In general, passionfruit should be planted in the spring when the temperatures are mild and there is plenty of moisture available.

3. Can I grow passion fruit from store bought?

Yes, you can grow passion fruit from store-bought fruit. The process is relatively simple and here are the steps:

  1. Choose ripe passion fruit: Select ripe passion fruit that are heavy and have a wrinkled skin. Avoid passion fruit that are bruised or have soft spots.
  2. Extract the seeds: Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. The seeds are surrounded by a gel-like substance, so you may need to use your fingers to separate them.
  3. Rinse the seeds: Rinse the seeds thoroughly with water to remove any remaining pulp.
  4. Dry the seeds: Spread the seeds out on a paper towel to dry. Allow them to air dry for at least 24 hours.
  5. Sow the seeds: Fill a small pot or container with well-draining potting mix. Make shallow furrows in the potting mix and sow the seeds evenly. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of potting mix.
  6. Water the seeds: Water the potting mix thoroughly until water runs out of the drainage holes.
  7. Place the pot in a warm location: Place the pot in a warm, sunny location. The ideal temperature for germination is between 21 and 27 degrees Celsius.
  8. Keep the potting mix moist: Keep the potting mix moist but not soggy. Water the pot regularly, but allow the surface of the potting mix to dry out slightly between waterings.
  9. Monitor the seeds: Check the seeds regularly for germination. The seeds should germinate within 2 to 3 weeks.

4. Do you need two passion fruits to get fruit?

It depends what variety of passionfruit you are growing. Most varieties of passion fruit are self-compatible, meaning they can produce fruit without being pollinated by another plant. However, some varieties are self-incompatible, meaning they need to be pollinated by another plant of the same variety to produce fruit.

This is why you may see some sources recommending growing two passion fruit plants of the same variety. However, this is not always necessary. If you are growing a self-compatible variety, you can still get fruit with just one plant. However, you will get a better fruit set if you have two plants that can pollinate each other.

Here is a list of some self-compatible passion fruit varieties:

5. What is the lifespan of a passion fruit plant?

The average lifespan of a passion fruit plant is 5-7 years. However, some passion fruit plants can live for up to 10 years or more with proper care. The lifespan of a passion fruit plant can be affected by a number of factors, including the variety of passion fruit, the climate, the soil, and the level of care.

Here are some tips for extending the lifespan of your passion fruit plant:

6. Does passion fruit come back every year?

Passion fruit plants are perennial. However, the amount of fruit they produce can vary from year to year depending on a number of factors, such as the weather, the plant's health, and the level of care.

Here are some tips for getting your passion fruit plant to produce fruit every year:

7. Do passionfruit lose their leaves in winter?

Passionfruit plants can lose their leaves in winter. This is because they are semi-deciduous plants, which means they lose some or all of their leaves in response to unfavorable conditions, such as cold temperatures or lack of water.

8. What kills passion fruit vines?

There are a number of things that can kill passion fruit vines, including:

If you are concerned about your passion fruit vine, it is important to identify the problem as early as possible.
