Did You Know
Passionfruit vines generally have 2 or 3 years of wonderful crops and then fruiting can start to decline. It’s a good idea to leave a little space so that every year you plant a few new vines so you have a constant supply coming through. Passionfruit flowers have both male and female parts and require pollinating insects like bees to help with fertilization.
