Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as Grenadilla or Sweet Grenadilla is a plant species in the Passiflora genus. See its flower from Wikipedia: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflora_ligularis

It is a fast growing climber with large leaves and it can grow to 14′. It is native to South America and has a strong but fragile, orange skin. The fruit has the shape and size of a plum. The shell is hard and shiny. The fruit contains a yellow, jelly-like pulp with a scattering of black edible seeds. The fruit has a sweet and very little sour flavour.


I like its fruit size and sweetness but I do prefer sweet fragrant juice with balanced acidic flavour. Is there any ‘perfect’ passion fruit variety? Do you know any? I would like to grow few for its pretty flowers and delicious fruit!

我想找想種完美的百香果–有美花欣賞和好吃的水果的品種. 你知道有這種品種嗎?

巴西耐寒的大花西番蓮Brazilian Passion Flower Vine (Passiflora caerulea)

Zone 5! They are the ones I really want! In the past, I have only seen the tropical ones (Zone 9) selling in the nurseies and garden centres. This year I decide to grow from seeds. After one month sitting in the freezer and then plant them in the supermarket mushroom container with some soil, I then place whole thing in a clear plastic bag. Daytime put near heat register so it is quite warm, put them in the fridge to keep cool at night before I go to sleep. They are in and out of my fridge for 2 weeks now, I saw the first sprout (the pink one)today!

一般園藝店賣的都不耐寒. 除了秋末要整大盆搬進屋渡過漫長的冬天外就是當一年生的將它賜死,因為植株不便宜所以今年看到這耐寒品系就決定來孵種子了!

冰箱冷凍了一個月後拿出來種在洋菇盒裡的淺土,再用透明塑膠袋紮起來放在溫暖的地方. 睡前再整包冰進冰箱冷藏. 早上再拿出來. 如此2周就可發芽,今天已有一顆有芽了!
