Purple Passion Fruit Overview
Known for its delicious fruit and exquisite flowers, granadillas. Granadillas are strong, vigorous vines that can easily be trained up a trellis, fence or wall. Native to the tropical regions of the world (Paraguay, Brazil and northern Argentina), granadillas are sensitive to frost and enjoy relatively high humidity and a rainfall of at least 1200mm per annum. Regular watering, pruning and fertilising will encourage continual flowering and fruiting. Fruits are round to oval with a tough purple skin and a high pulp content. The delicious pulp is often used in drinks, desserts and fruity recipes. The plants should be trained to grow on a well-constructed trellis, otherwise, they are soon out of reach.
