A rare edible passion fruit native to Australia with large and succulent fruits which are white-fleshed with a tasty flavour.
It produces delightful pale apricot flowers that occur in spring, followed by fruits ripening 3-4 months later. The leaves are three-lobed, but can also be entire (not lobed)

It is reported to have the best flavour of the native passion fruit.

Grows very rapidly and occurs naturally in New South Wales and Queensland.

Prefers medium to heavy soil in a protected shaded position. Drought and frost tender.

Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms we recommend you research these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible or some may need to be prepared before they are safe to eat or use in any way. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. It is the purchaser's responsibility to ensure they are fit for their intended use.

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.
