Passiflora edulis 'Frederick'
Frederick is the premier-fruit producing passiflora! The flowers are fragrant and large. The fruit has a dark purple skin and delicious pulp when ripe. The fruit should never be picked; it must fall from the vine naturally. If it is allowed to wrinkle a bit after collecting, it becomes sweet ambrosia. This outstanding Patrick Pons-Worley hybrid is vigorous and blooms from late spring until fall. Restrict root growth to encourage flowering and fruiting.
If you don't live in USDA Zones 9-11, grow it in a sunny window or greenhouse. It thrives and produces, often the first year, in a pot. This plant is excellent for a sunny location and makes a good, rapidly growing screen for a fence or outbuilding.
