"Yellow Passion Fruit"

10 Yellow Passion Fruit Seeds

10 FRESH THAI YELLOW PASSION FRUIT SEEDS PASSIFLORA FLAVICARPUS SWEET TROPICAL

Passiflora are climbers with three-fingered leaves and so attractive you’d want to grow them in your conservatory if you live in an area of severe frost. They can take mild frost, though the leaves (and perhaps the stem) will be killed back to the ground; however it should shoot again from the roots when the frost is past.

The first true leaves of Passiflora are almost heart shaped, and it is not until they have produced maybe 10 sets of leaves that they first show finger-shaped leaves.

At this stage it is worth offering the plants some support in their pots, in the form of a stick, as they will be throwing out tendrils looking for something to hold on to as they begin their climb.

They can reach twenty metres in the right environment and in a very short time as they are extremely vigorous climbers.

The flavour is appealing, very sweet, musky, guava-like.

Seeds are planted 1/2 in (1.25 cm) deep in beds, and seedlings may be transplanted when 10 in (25 cm) high. If taller–up to 3 ft (.9 in)–the tops should be cut back and the plants heavily watered.

Regular watering will keep a vine flowering and fruiting almost continuously. Least flowers develop during the winter season due to short day length. Water requirement is high when fruits are approaching maturity. If soil is dry, fruits may shrivel and fall prematurely

Passion Fruit vines are grown on many soil types but light to heavy sandy loams, of medium texture are most suitable, and pH should be from 6.5 to 7.5. If the soil is too acid, lime must be applied.

Good drainage is essential to minimize the incidence of collar rot

"Mini Passion Fruit"

10 Mini Passion Fruit Seeds

The stems are thin and wiry, covered with minute sticky yellow hairs. Older stems become woody. The leaves are three- to five-lobed and viscid-hairy. The flowers are white to pale cream coloured, about 5–6 cm diameter. The fruit is globose, 2–3 cm diameter, yellowish-orange to red when ripe, and has numerous black seeds embedded in the pulp. Passiflora foetida is able to trap insects on its bracts, which exude a sticky substance that also contains digestive enzymes. This minimizes predation on young flowers and fruits. This passion flower tolerates arid ground, but favours wet areas.

Uses : The fruits are kumquat sized and contain a bluish-white pulp that is mildly sweet and delicately flavored.

Young leaves and plant tips are also edible. Dry leaves are used in tea in Vietnamese folk medicine to relieve sleeping problems.

Passiflora foetida contains high levels of saponins and is used as a substitute for soap in the manufacture of (soap-free) detergents.
