Cuttings are taken weekly from our own 2 year old productive vine. It takes 2-3 weeks to root each cutting. Fruits can be expected to ripen 70 to 80 days after pollination. Passionfruit vines develop extensive root systems to fuel all that growth and fruit production, so allow plenty of room for roots to grow. An ideal spot to grow a vine is along a wire fence, across a balcony, or over a pergola where they provide year-round shade. If you want to grow a vine along a sunny wall or fence, install some wire, trellis or mesh as support for its tendrils.
The fresh pulp is composed of water (73%), carbohydrates (22%) and a negligible quantity (2%) of proteins. An excellent source of vitamins A, B (especially the yellow variety), C and E, it also contains calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus (one single fruit contains as much phosphorus as two or three bananas!).
