Short Description

Very hardy and attractive perennial vine.

Full Description

Passion fruit exhales a rich, sensuous fragrance, a tropical; lange of fruit and flowery notes. The egg-sized fruits' musky, tart, juicy pulp can be savored raw or used to make juices, ices and sauces. The vigorous ornamental vine with showy flowers, rapidly grows to 10-20 ft. and will meander along fences and trees. The maypop is one of the hardiest passion flowers and will overwinter, dying back to the ground and popping back to life the following season (hence "May pop").

Passionflower, Maypops is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun and yummy to grow but didn't come back These did great their first summer! The plants grew like crazy. Got several fruit off them which were seedy but delicious. The flowers are so fun too! However, these were listed as a perennial on Burpee's website for my zone, and they did not come back. I even had then planted by a wall of my house to shelter them, but they didn't survive the winter. I wish I could get my money back but of course I couldn't know for sure they didn't come back until now, and it's past the year mark. I think they have the hardiness zone labelled incorrectly on their website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow to take off! Planted it in late May. It has grown substantially on my arbor and has a few beautiful, fragrant blossoms. Next summer, I believe it will cover the arbor. Not sure about any fruit yet. I am happy with it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maypop in July Two years ago I bought two passion flower vines; fruiting the first season with the hot summers here in Spokane. It came as a small plant but grew vigorously, and the second year they were popping all along the fence line. Then an extreme winter struck and no maypop in May or June this year, now the first week of July it popped up in the lawn after not having the lawn cut for about two weeks for the clover of my honey bees. Dug it up and transplanted it on both original planted locations. Hope it regains strength can't wait for the beautiful flowers and the fruit early fall is when they taste best. Shop around it pays of. Buy it for the flowers and the little fruit you will get is just a bonus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tiny I practically had to get a magnifying glass to see it. I swear it could not have been tinier and not have been a seed. I just hope it grows fast. It came in a 2" container.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought the plant but could not get to grow. The plant came wilted with most of its leaves off. It died within a few day. I was pleased that Burpe replaced the plant but the second plant also died. It also came very wilted but did come back from the root. Unfortunately it did not stand up to the heat here in Abilene.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I was in the midst of moving when the plant arrived this spring, and I planted it late in less-than-ideal soil, but its doing great! The flowers are gorgeous and smell wonderful. I'm looking forward to tasting the fruit once it ripens. I'm a little worried about transplanting it out of it's crummy pot since it's already vining, but it seems hearty enough to handle some more moving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from twice ordered; twice dead or near dead plants come Sorry; despite Burpee being good at offering replacements for the first order of three plants; the next reorder came with no dirt in the pots; and dead appearing 10 inch stalk...I carefully worked each and every stalk into high quality soil; and so far, with two weeks of careful watering and moving in and out of sun, no luck; the vine segments appear totally dead...I always thought that the Burpee name was the highest caliber, but not when ordering plants...guess I might even stop using their seeds....I wasted a lot of money trying to get passionflower plants from them.
