White passionfruit

Posted on

Before heading off to work this morning, I planted out two new white passionfruit seedlings. These were a gift from my grandmother, who rescued a fruit from her old house, and grew new plants from that.

Apparently these type of passionfruit produce long, almost banana shaped fruit that are extremely sweet. The fruit is, naturally, white. (They are also very uncommon, rarely if ever seen in garden stores or seed catalogues.)

I’ve planted them along the side fence at the front, with the goal of covering over some ancient (and faded) graffiti. They should end up taking over the entire fence, making for a glorious green border rather than a boring paling fence.
