Is my passionfruit climbing frame big enough?

mymauritiangarden(5)June 28, 2013

I live in Mauritius, so can't tell you the variety - at the nursery, you get the option of yellow or purple passionfruit! Mine's purple if that's any help! The frame is 2.4 x 1.5m. I've recently transplanted it, and pruned it back hard. Once it grows, will I be able to prune the vine to keep it within the confines of the frame? I've never grown passionfruit so any advice will be more than welcome. Thanks, Veronique.

They grow like weeds, You'll constantly be pruning to keep it in that small an area. I have a couple and the vines easily get 15 ft growth in a year.

Thanks for that - I don't mind pruning it - I have no other choice - I guess my question should really have been, will it still fruit with constant pruning?
There's a pre-pruning photo at the link below.
