Passiflora caerulea is an evergreen climber with white bowl-shaped fragrant flowers with creamy-white flowers with purple-blue zoned coronas which occur during summer and are followed by large edible fruits that are rather insipid when eaten raw. Grown mainly as an ornamental for its attractive flowers.

Originates from Brazil.

Grow notes:

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring, avoiding the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 25-30°C

To assist in the uptake of moisture for germination to occur seed is best soaked in warm water for 24 hours prior to sowing.

Warm water soak is recommended for this species.

  1. Place the seed in a container with warm water (around 25°C) and allow it to soak 24hrs.
  2. Sow seed 3-4mm deep.
  3. Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  4. Place in a warm shaded or semi-shaded position to avoid dying out.
  5. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  6. Germination should occur in 30-60 days @ 25-30°C

General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.

Passionfruit is a warm-season crop, and you can sow its seeds directly in the garden or in containers from late autumn to the end of spring.

The ideal depth for sowing is 8mm, and you should keep the soil moist but not too wet or dry. It usually takes around 21-70 days for the seeds to germinate. You can speed up the process by soaking them in warm water for 24 hours before planting.

Place the seeds in a container with warm water (around 25°C) and let them soak for 24 hours before sowing them 6 mm deep.
Remember to water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbing the seed. After sowing, please keep them in a warm, shaded or semi-shaded position. Keep the growing mix warm and moist without letting it become waterlogged.

Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
