Passiflora mollissima

Also known as Banana Passion Flower This plant is easy to grow. It has a slightly bitter taste that goes well with dishes such as risotto. In addition to being tasty radicchio is said to be good for insomnia and purifying blood. It is popular for adding zest to vegetarian diets. This attractive, fast growing vine does well in cool climates, and features spectacular pink flowers, followed by yummy yellow fruit. It often produces in its first year, so train it well against a trellis or similar support. The fruit of this variety are not as sweet as the normal passionfruit, but still very yummy. This is a rampant vine that produces masses of juicy soft skinned fruit that are a joy to eat. The yellow torpedo shaped fruit do not have the tartness associated with the black varieties and are ideal for flavouring desserts and eating straight from the vine. This variety grows easily in southern climates and tolerates cooler conditions. The banana passionfruit is native to the Andean valleys from Venezuala to Peru. They are related to the black passionfruit and look somewhat like a straight, small banana with rounded ends. Almost always grown from seeds, but can be propagated by cuttings. Bottom heating the seeds at 70-80F can result in germination at 1-2 weeks, at lower temperatures seeds can take up to 10 weeks to germinate. Vines usually produce by the second year and can yield up to 300 fruits a vine when in full production. Beautiful red-pink flowers are borne at the ends of a long stalk. Flowers may attract hummingbirds. Fruits can ripen year round. The plants are hardy to -7C but may defoliate or die back in colder areas but will re-grow from the roots next spring.
