Passiflora Quadrangularis 10 Seeds, Giant Granadilla Passion Fruit Vine Climber

The Plant Attraction


Passiflora quadrangularis
Also known as: Giant Granadilla

One of the most beautiful of the passion flowers, this beauty opens its large, fragrant flowers with deep red petals and a center 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 9 pounds turning to medium yellow when mature. For best fruiting, flowers should be hand pollinated. At maturity, it can climb up to 50 feet tall.

The ripe fruit is eaten fresh or used in drinks whilst unripe, green fruit is eaten as a vegetable. It can be chopped and combined for unique fruit salads, where it adds a mellow charm with a hint of lime like flavor.
It prefers fertile, well-drained soil. It is quite hardy, surviving temperatures down to 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.

This offer is for 10 fresh seeds.
