Fruitscaping with Passionfruit Vines

You could not ask for a more exotic-looking vine in your edible landscape. From the frilly purple and white flowers to the large purple fruit, passionfruit vines are a delight in the garden or large container. The vines continue to look fabulous throughout the Summer as they thrive in the heat and sun.

Passionfruit is loved worldwide for its unique, sweet to sweet-tart, tropical flavor whether eaten fresh, juiced, or jellied. It’s flavor has been likened to a mix of mango, guava, papaya, and pineapple. While the Purple Passionfruit is native to southern Brazil, Paraguay and northern Chile; the yellow Passionfruit origin is unknown as it may have come from the Amazon area of Brazil or may be a hybrid – it’s a mystery! All Passionfruit vines are rampant growers so give them lots of room. They grow well on a trellis, fence or arbor. Some varieties are host and nectar plants for butterflies and all will produce gorgeous flowers before setting fruit. Passionfruit vines are frost tender so choose your location wisely with lots of sun. While drought tolerant, regular watering is required for good fruit set and fruit quality. Fruit is ripe when fully colored or has fallen off the vine. Even a little shrivelled is okay!.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
