  3. PASSIFLORA EDULIS VAR. FLAVICARPA

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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
