My passionfruit vine took off like greased lightening when I first planted it 14 months ago. It has climbed about 60ft up a happy plant in one of the neighbours yard. It has also wandered about 20ft in each direction along our own fence, and also over the arch, although that is not really its preffered route. It definitely likes to climb up more than anything!
I estimate that we (and our neighbours who share the fences) must have had about 500 passionfruit off that vine so far, and it is not about to stop any time soon.. We wait until the fruit drops and then pick them up. Perfectly ripened, and they can stay in the refigerator for at least a couple of weeks until quite wrinkled, but are still very tasty. I have frozen some pulp but cant imagine a time I will use it, as there is never a time I do not have fresh passionfruit.
The base of the vine has woody passionfruit virus, but it is still going strong, covering over the old dead wood with new branches. What a tangle! The roots grow deep into what was my neighbours chook pen, but they lost most of their chickens over the wet season, and just have one left. Now they are using that area to build up a compost pile. I noticed that suddenly all the new growth has yellowing leaves.
