Delicious Fruit, Flowers You’ll Adore – This Vine Will Climb Right Into Your Heart
The Granadilla or Passiflora Edulis ‘Purple Possum’ rewards you with a fruit of exceptional flavor. Then, take a glance at its purple-white flower. You’ll agree it’s unlike any you’ve seen before.
Let’s take a moment to set the record straight. A Granadilla is not a Passion Fruit. Granadillas tend to be a big larger, and more elongated. The very soft pulp of a Granadilla is almost clear and custard-like. The Granadilla tastes a bit like a Kiwi, while some think Passion Fruit tastes more like a cross between a strawberry and a grapefruit.
The Granadilla is fast growing, perfect for a trellis or along a fence. They love full sun and a good amount of water. They are cold hardy and can easily withstand a light frost. Easy care with lots of flare!
