Cultivation Advice Passion Fruit Edible mix

  • Sow in late winter/late spring or late summer/autumn.
  • Seeds must be pre-soaked for 24 hrs started in hand hot water.
  • Sow in fine seed compost and just cover with ¼” of the growing medium.
  • Germination temperature 22-25C.  They will not germinate on a standard windowsill and will need additional warmth.

  • Seedlings can be pricked out when large enough to handle and potted on as required.  Take care to minimise damage to the roots as this can inhibit growth.
