Passiflora caerulea 'Sapphire' Info Wanted

martieinctAugust 5, 2006

Early spring picked up a plant with Nurserymen's Exchange label: "Passion Vine - Sapphire". Found it in the pity pile at local supermarket. Roots were good; it is now thriving in the ground.

Have determined that it is P. carerulea. Know it won't be hardy here in Z6 and will probably bring it in semi-dormant for the winter.

To my delight, it is fruiting. Have read mixed reviews about eating, seed saving/wintersowing, etc. Anyone here with first-hand experience?

Thanks from Martie, visiting from the New England Gardening Forum

'Sapphire' is a cross of P. edulis and caerulea. It sets fruit easily, but they are usually empty.
