Description

The flowers of Passiflora alata are amongst the most conspicious of the entire species- not only because of their colour: the petals are bright red on the upside, purple- white underside. The collar with its tight, purple-white stripe pattern is an eye-catcher and with up to 12 cm the strong, sturdy flowers reaches a considerable size. They produce up to 10 cm long, oval fruits whose seeds are encased with a juicy- aromatic fruit-pulp that you know as passion fruit juice. Another significant feature of this Granadilla is the stalk with its square-shaped cross section and the upright growth that makes it climber best suitable for high, coarse-meshed trellises at which they can cling with their tendrils.
