Fragrant Granadilla. Yellow, elongated fruit. It is incredibly fragrant which is why gardeners love growing it, but the fruit is found to be the best out of the other varieties. A vigorous grower from 10’-20’, it bears in late Summer to early Fall absolutely stunning, pendulous dark crimson/violet flowers, 4” across. The large, almost leathery leaves are attractive year around. Grown in home gardens and commercially for its fragrant edible fruit in Brazil. Cold hardy to 28-30F. Best grown in a warm spot in rich, regularly watered soil. Flowers appear on new growth, so any pruning should be done early in the season. Can be grown in a large container.
