    Hi Bill. Those yellow (Flavicarpa) passion fruit seeds that I got 5 months ago turned into 6 foot long plants and look almost big enough to start flowering. Wonder if they will pollinate each other. Heard Yellow is a more difficult fruit to pollinate. I also have a Frederick and a Purple Possom in the greenhouse that are a year old and flowering quite a bit. Maybe the pollen from those would work on the yellow? Any suggestions? I'm hand pollinating because I don't have bees in my greenhouse.

    Do you grow any Passiflora Ligularis (Sweet Granadilla)? Guessing it would do well there.

    Hey Bill. Do you still find that the best tasting fruits are the ones you pick off the ground and are slightly wrinkled? I am also thinking of getting a couple passion fruit plants, but since I am in zone 8a and you need to be in zone 9 at a minimum, I don't think it will survive.

    Can Passiflora edulis cross pollinate Passiflora incarnata? I live in zone 7. P. Incarnata grows here naturally but is not very tasty. I wonder if cross pollination will create a tastier fruit that is cold tolerant.

    I have the purple one but I rarely pay any attention to it because it's not my favorite but I recently tried Passiflora Ligularis and it blew me away by how delicious and sweet it was. I'm currently growing a whole bunch of seedlings now.

    doesnt care what its planted in, doesnt care about being transplanted, doesnt care about winter in zone 8, it just keeps growing.. i kind of cant believe it honestly lol puts all the temperate fruits to shame (the purple one).. the banana passion fruit is more like a normal plant lol
