    PASSIFLORA ANTIOQUIENSIS

    One of the world's rarest and most spectacular Passion flowers, dazzling red blossoms with darker eyes, hang down on long peduncles, along its entire length before producing unique seed pods. A superb ornamental plant, it grows in highland regions in western part of South America, where it makes a climbing shrub with shoots growing up to 5m tall and in the wild it is often hummingbird pollinated. The edible, yellow ellipsoidal fruit has a sweet flavour, and it may be eaten raw or made into drinks. In cooler countries it should be grown either in a large pot or a very sheltered position outside. ... Learn More

  2. PASSIFLORA CAERULEA

    This lovely exotic-looking climber is quite hardy in sheltered positions where it displays its fragrant, intricately-marked, pale blue flowers in summer. This is the one that will provide fruit in the UK and cooler countries in late autumn and right into winter, when the attractive, plum-sized orange fruits appear filled with edible crunchy pips and sweet, tasty pulp. This popular plant is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. ... Learn More

  3. PASSIFLORA EDULIS

    This vigorous climber has deeply 3-lobed leaves, climbing tendrils, and purple-centred frilly white flowers, followed by a heavy crop of purple, edible fruit. It is native to Paraguay, Brazil and parts of Argentina and although it is half hardy, it may be killed off down to the ground in hard winters, but reliably re-grows from the roots next spring. ...

  4. PASSIFLORA EDULIS VAR. FLAVICARPA

    Sizeable purple-eyed, pale lemon coloured flowers smother the vines for a considerable length of time in early summer. Attractive tasty yellow fruits with a thick leathery skin, but 50% larger than the common one soon ripen. Not commonly available in supermarkets, the taste is stronger and slightly more acidic than that of the common Passiflora edulis. It is native to Southern Brazil through Paraguay to Northern Argentina and is now cultivated in all tropical areas, with stems reaching 20 to 50, or even 80 meters long when it is allowed to grow on fences or trellises, or allowed to scramble over shrubs and trees. It can also be kept as a container plant or attractive house plant in a sunny south-facing window. ... Learn More

    One of the hardier and prettier of the Passion Fruits , this is a relatively short vine, easy to grow in well drained soil and enjoying full sun to part shade. It is drought tolerant and flowers in early summer with the sweet golden fruits ripening toward the end of autumn. Its evergreen, deeply lobed leaves provide an excellent backdrop to show off the attractive bright purple bowl-shaped flowers. ... Learn More

  6. PASSIFLORA LIGULARIS

    Strong vines carry large, attractive, greenish-white flowers, which produce absolutely huge, almost spherical, orange to yellow fruits. The fascinating outer shell is slippery and hard like an egg-shell, and has soft padding on the interior to protect the easily-chewed black seeds which are surrounded by sweet, aromatic, transparent pulp, rather reminiscent of pineapple. These fruits are best eaten like a hard-boiled egg by cutting off a piece of the hard shell and scooping out the tasty flesh, which contains vitamins A, C, and K, phosphorus, iron, and calcium. It is native to the Andes Mountains between Bolivia, Venezuela and Colombia, growing as far south as northern Argentina and as far north as Mexico. Outside of its native range it grows in the tropical mountains of Africa and Australia, and is now common in local markets of Papua New Guinea. ... Learn More

  7. PASSIFLORA MOLLISSIMA

    Resembling a straight banana with rounded ends, this passion fruit prefers a cooler and less humid environment than others, when it will produce dozens of large, bright yellow fruits which usually hang, hidden, deep within the foliage of the plant, the vines sometimes having the tendency to fall down to the ground with the great weight of the fruit. These are ripe when they are easily pulled from the vine, the interior being a deep, dark orange. Unlike the more common passifloras, this is quite sweet, and when very ripe can be eaten out of hand. It is native to the Andes, and is found wild in Venezuela, Columbia, Peru, and Bolivia at high altitudes up to 5400 to 10,500 feet. In warmer climes the bright pink flowers, which bloom continuously throughout the year, attract hummingbirds, as well as being a favourite food of the butterflies. ... Learn More

  8. PASSIFLORA POPENOVII

    The fragrant, pendulous flowers of this very rare plant open in clusters in the early morning, and have white petals with pale green sepals. The sizeable elipsoid fruit has a spongy shell and is yellow or orange when ripe, the sweet, aromatic, juicy flesh being pale yellow. So far, no wild plants of this almost unknown species have ever been found, and its origin is presently a mystery. It was described for the first time in the province of El Oro in Ecuador where it is also cultivated, and in Colombia it is known by the names of Cauca or curubejo passion in Nariño and Cauca departments where it grows at between 1400 and 2100 metres altitude. We have just a few wild-collected seeds to offer. ... Learn More

  9. PASSIFLORA QUADRANGULARIS

    One of the most beautiful of the passion flowers, this beauty opens its large, fragrant flowers with deep red petals and a centre crown that contains five rows of numerous white and purple rays. Large leaves hang from stems that are quadrangular in cross section, hence its botanical name. It produces the most enormous fruits of all of the passion fruits, which grow very rapidly, and may weigh up to 4 kg (9 lb) turning to medium yellow when mature. For best fruiting, flowers should be hand pollinated. The ripe fruit is eaten fresh or used in drinks whilst unripe, green fruit is eaten as a vegetable. It is quite hardy, surviving temperatures down to 1°C (35°F) for short periods of time. In warm areas it can be cultivated in home gardens, or it can even be kept as a greenhouse or indoor container plant, and grown in a sunny south-facing window. ... Learn More
