Passiflora ligularis - Sweet Granadilla

$3.99

Sweet Granadilla, the most delicious of all the world's passion fruits, is called Sugar Fruit in local markets. In Hawaiian they are farmed for both fruit and flowers. With heart-shaped leaves, this is no ordinary vine: wild, purple-striped fringe grows from fragrant, pale 4-inch flowers.

Sub-tropical -- not tropical -- Passiflora ligularis grows wild in the misty mountains of Central America and needs a cooler climate than most of its cousins. Zones 8-9 are perfect. It will tolerate a brief freeze, but it doesn't like Florida or California.

You can grow it indoors in a sunny window, and it flowers best when its roots are constricted in a container. It needs rich, loamy soil, even moisture and frequent feedings.

This fast-growing vine can grow 20 feet in a single season -- give it a strong trellis to climb, and get out of the way.

These seeds were just scooped out of a fresh fruit and will germinate easily. Rich soil, barely cover, keep them warm. No dormancy to overcome!
