Passiflora incarnata

Commonly known as Maypop, this member of the passion flower family blooms and fruits outside down to as low as USDA zone 6! The only common Passiflora native to N America, this useful plant has edible leaves, flowers and fruit. Valued by native peoples for its sedative, relaxing qualities.

Like most maypops, once established it can handle freezes with no problem and will regrow year after year! The vines can be trained along a trellis or fence, but prefer to grow freely as compact growth tends to inhibit flowering and fruiting. Will be evergreen in the warmer zones of its growing range.

USDA Zone: 6-9

Grow Height: Indeterminate vine

Sun: Half Sun - Full Sun

Ripening Time: Summer - Fall

Pollination: Self Fertile

Size: 1 Gallon Pot


Ask a Question
  • Will Maypop fruit ripen in the Tacoma WA area?

    In certain microclimates yes.

  • Does this bear maypop fruit?

    In the right climates, yes it makes passionfruit!

  • Hi, how long will passiflora maypop take to start fruiting? I live in Boston (7a). Does it need any protection in the winter if I grow it in my backyard? Also may i know how does the fruit taste like? Is it more sour than sweet? Thank you!

    Unripe maypop is quite sour and it may not fully ripen in your region. They can be grown outside, but will die back to the ground in the winter and rewgrow the following year.

Passiflora Maypop

Raintree sent me a very well grown substantial plant. It was the best packaged live plant that I've received in over 7 years of gardening. We'll see if it thrives in my windy garden, but it certainly has a good head start. Thanks.

I received a healthy Maypop

I have been waiting over a year to purchase a Passiflora incarnata. I kept coming back to the Raintree Nursery website to check availability. Finally, I signed up to get an email when the Maypop was available, and I was so pleased to get notified when it was in stock (in the past, I have asked a different nursery to let me know when they got a plant in, and they never contacted me, so it's really nice to know that Raintree Nursery actually follows through).
I ordered the plant and was referred to Raintree's calendar that indicated when the Maypop would ship to my area. It arrived in beautiful shape shortly after the ship date, and I have planted it. We are still having freezing temperatures at night, so the Maypop isn't doing much, but it still looks healthy. I'm looking forward to seeing it grow and mature. and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it bloom.

Maypop a hit in my garden

The company was very responsive to my questions and instructions for planting Maypop vines in my new sun garden. They are still babies but growing stronger everyday. I can’t wait to taste the fruit! I used to live in South Africa and it was my favorite fruit.
