My first Passionfruit, there's about 5 that I can see. They're called Panama Red, a pretty common variety I think. I'm a little concerned that the local wildlife will get them before I do, bats, possums, birds?
gees they look healthy! ... mine are coming along.. seem to take ages to ripen, but I think i'll have an excess amount all in one go.
$1.49!!! That's criminal for just one passionfruit... We freeze any excess pulp but they do last a long time on the kitchen bench.
I saw.... $1.49 each at the local IGA. I wonder how much the farmer sold them for, they looked pretty second hand really.
I often do the same because if a plant is producing plenty of fruit it doesn't really matter if some are lost to diseases or animals.This year's crop has been excellent, but a lot of mine were lost to a shrivelling disorder that one Yates rep thought was Woodiness and the plant needed to be taken down. But it has given us such great fruit I can't see myself doing that.
You bet Stevo - I've seen passionfruits at our local Woolies for 99c each!According to the local IGA prices, this is about $60 worth!
