Passiflora foetida flowers but no fruit!

How can I get my single foetida to set fruit? There are many flowers, and plenty of carpenter bees that pollinate, but they always wilt and fall off. Can anyone help please?

I don't know if there are different foetidas but mine sets fruit with viable seed without any help from me. It's one of my few passies that do it. Have you tried hand pollinating it?

Maybe The Answer is NOT to fuss with it too much.... Mine Gets watered when I remmber and I use a Banana Peel in the pot for Food...
