A rare edible passion fruit native to Australia that grows quickly.
The leaves are 3-5 lobed. Produces delightful brick red flowers 10 cm across that occur in spring, followed by fruits ripening 3-4 months later.
Fruits are large and succulent, white-fleshed with a tasty flavour. It is considered to have one of the best flavours of the native passion fruit.
Occurs naturally in New South Wales and Victoria.
Prefers medium to heavy soil in a protected partially shaded position. Frost resistant but drought tender.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 23-25°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.
A warm water soak is recommended for this species.
General note: Seeds of many natives 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.
