Passiflora Edulis 10 Seeds, Purple Edible Passion Fruit Vine Flowering Climber
Also known as: Purple Passion Fruit
Known for its edible fruit and is commonly used in tropical beverages and sauces. The pulp has an intense aromatic flavor, while the texture is jelly-like and watery. The seeds are edible so you can eat the pulp straight from the shell. It is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and many dietary fibers.
The beautiful flowers can average 4" and have an abundance of long wavy filaments. It is a fast-growing, perennial vine that can grow up to 10 meters long (20-30 feet) and will require a good climbing aid. Nutrient-rich potting soil with a suitable proportion of sand, perlite or vermiculite will ensure good permeability. Good drainage is also beneficial. It has always been grown in Paraguay, Brazil and northern Argentina, their native land. But because of their delicious fruit it has been cultivated all over the world. It is considered to be hardy in USDA zones 5-9, but they should be planted in a protected location and mulched heavily if severe cold threatens. Only the top growth is killed back by frost, but your Passion Flower should pop back to life in the Spring.
It is suitable for container planting, and enjoys a warm sunny spot.
