(Passiflora edulis) Self-fertile passion fruit that can be grown in containers, in the greenhouse, or outdoors in warmest climate zones. Prefers full sun, ample water. The delicious purple fruits are fine for eating out of hand, or processing into jellies, juices or desserts. The classic white, purple and cream-colored Passion flowers are stunning, especially when grown where they can be seen and appreciated close-up. Bees and butterflies love them as well. Climbing plants will require staking. 2 plants.

We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height.

No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER APRIL 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Easy to grow, lots of fruit

What are the cons? Needs pruning or will get wild

Review:

I haven't actually purchased this from Baker Creek (a fan though). Wanted to recommend this plant to pretty much everyone who live in a warm enough climate to grow it. I will share with you the technical details from Israel, where this is an extremely common garden plant (several vines in my yard, too). Takes about 1 year to bear fruit. Yield improves every year. Can grow to dozens to feet wide and high - has no limits if not pruned. Once mature, in full sun will grow extremely quickly, inches by the day. Pollinated by hand or honeybees. In my country flowers and bears fruit in Spring and Fall. Fruit are extremely tasty. Both fruit and leaves used as food/tea/medicine (google it). Better bought as live plant - a bit of a challenge to propagate from seed. Many vines gradually stop bearing fruit after 7-8 years, but by that time they would have had hundreds of fruit each season, which can get the size of a small lemon. Lots of water and sun, success guaranteed. Great as living fence, too

What are the pros? Larger than expected

What are the cons? Yellow spots

Review:

My little plants arrived today and I was very surprised at the size of them. I was expecting much smaller. I am worried about them, though, as there are yellow spots on the leaves. Is this normal or something to worry about? I plan on keeping them inside for another week or two, as this winter doesn't want to go away and they are still calling for temps in the low 30's. Yuck-bring on the spring! After the worst winter here since the 1890's, the cold just won't leave.

LOTS of Medicine.
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Semi easy to grow

What are the cons? INVASIVE

Review:

Did not even know it was growing the first year I was caring for the bed. Last year it EXPLODED. It sent runners and tendrils and popped up EVERYWHERE, including where we did not really want it to. We harvested the flowers for medicine and so we did not see much in the way of fruit but there were a couple. Found out later the whole upper plant is good for medicine. IT NEEDS A LOT OF SPACE. Read it was a short lived perennial so hoping that will control it soon. Recommended with prejudice.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not many fruit/flowers

Review:

Bought these last spring, planted them in a pot on my balcony and they took off. Produced about a dozen flowers over the summer and one fruit which is still ripening b/c we got a late start (moved it indoors under LEDs for the winter). I am hoping next year yields more flowers/fruits since the plant is now established. My tiny sprig of two leaves quickly morphed into an out of control vine that requires regular trimming to keep it contained. I've barely taken care of the plant itself, only watering when the soil is dry up to my first knuckle, pretty much neglecting it and letting it do it's own thing, however I did use very fertile organic soil when I planted it and changed that soil when I transplanted it so it really didn't "need" much care. I"ll be ordering more of these once we've moved and I have a greenhouse to keep them in.

What are the pros? Grew quickly, trained easily

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

My sister sent these to me as a gift (planted this past spring) and I put the tiny plants into a hanging basket. They took off like rockets in a sunny spot with plenty of watering (by hand). Just last week I got my first two beautiful flowers, but you have to keep them close to where you can see them since the blooms are only at their peak for one day. My blooms looked exactly like the one in the photo on this page!
