Pollinating Passiflora's

perezjuanf(10a)May 20, 2013

I just purchased a caerulea 'Constance Elliot', Passiflora edulis mixed & Passiflora foetida mixed

Are any of these self pollinating or will I have to do a manual pollination on them

foetida is usually self pollinating; edulis may or may not be self compatible OR "self" pollinating; caerulea may or may not be self compatible OR self pollinating. When in doubt- pollinate by hand and keep careful notes. Transfer pollen as soon as flowers open for best results or when the anthers drop down to the plane of the petals. Edulis on caerulea might work. Foetids will not pollinate the other two in my experience
