Vine or creeperFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Varieties: Possum Purple, Quadrangularis. Season: July to October. Rampant woody vine that climbs with tendrils. Evergreen leaves, deeply 3 lobed, 3 to 8 deep green, shiny above, paler and dull beneath. Single fragrant flower 2 to 3 wide is borne at each node on the new growth. Showy, intensely colored flower produces the nearly round to ovoid fruit with a tough rind which is smooth and waxy. Pulp within is highly aromatic orange-colored with hard dark brown or black seeds. Flavor is appealing, musky, guava-like sub-acid to acid. Use mulch and plenty of organic matter in the soil to reduce nematode damage. Eaten fresh, used in juice processing, preserves and wines.

Plant seed in a light soil and provide high humidity and warmth (78 F). Germination should start in a month or less. When the seedling is 2 to 3 inches tall, put it in an individual pot. Keep it in a bright place with moderate temperatures, avoid extremes.

Passiflora maliformis

Sweet Calabash, Conch apple, Hard-shelled Passionfruit, Sweet Cup, Water Lemon
Family: Passifloraceae
Origin: Northern South America
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Fast-growing vine, grows best in somewhat cooler than tropical climates. The rind is particularly hard, and tougher than most passion fruits. This species is native and common in the wild in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and from Saba to Barbados and Trinidad; also Venezuela, Colombia and northern Ecuador. It is cultivated in Jamaica, Brazil and Ecuador for its fruits, and in Hawaii as an ornamental in private gardens. The fruits ripen from September to December, are light-yellow with a very hard shell, difficult to open but the seedy pulp is much enjoyed. Yellow-orange pulp is aromatically scented and flavored. In Jamaica, it is scooped from the shell and served with wine and sugar. The strained juice is excellent for making cold drinks. Snuff boxes have been made of the shell of the hard type. This species is noted for its resistance to pests and diseases that affect its relatives.
