Hi
This was my first year growing passiflora
Last pring i planted a few Incarnata seeds, and had a VERY large plant by the end of fall, with several flowers
but only 1 fruit ripened.
It tasted like heaven !!!
I am HOOKED.

I live near New Orleans and am wondering what are some other varieties i can grow ?

I have a heat-mat and a greenhouse
i grow a lot of papaya, guava and other stuff.
I can plant them now, but i really want them in the ground so they can proliferate in the New Orleans sun

Also, am very open to trade if anyone has seeds for another variety i can grow.
I have lots of stuff.
(not passiflora though)
or, can gladly pay postage

thanks
Brad

Brad,

If you liked incarnata fruits, wait till you try a good p. edulis variety. I've heard purple possum is a good tasting purple variety. Being in 9b, you can get a way with more than just incarnata. Have you checked well spring nursery on ebay for the pasiflroa variety they have? I think they have p, edulis and p. edulis possum purple for a very good price. I have one of the PP, but hasn't grown much for me, since I got it last year late in the growing season. Hopefully i'll get to try some fruits this year from it. I have some rooted cuttings of regular p. edulis, if you would like one, I can send a rooted cutting to you in the spring. Then, in the summer, I could send you cuttings of my p. edulis "Panama Gold". It is a commercial variety from Australia, said to have very large fruit and sweet tasting.
