Promise of good things. Popped a couple of trays of passionfruit into the freezer. Picked a few to add to my weekly supply, shared a few and a new crop on the way. This has to be my most successful garden story. #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold

Small selfseed seedlings on left transplanted from front to back of garden. They now join the (right) neighbouring, self seed vine that chose the correct place to grow. Never planned to have passionfruit growing over my patio. Sometimes nature gives me a helping hand. Have to watch they do not grow over the roof. Just as well I love passionfruit. #selfseed #happyaccident @kariSamuel #passionfruit-panamagold

This healthy looking Passionfruit has self seeded in the wrong place. Does that make it a weed? Not when it gets moved to the right place! Moved to back to grow with Stephonatis supported on patio railing. Now my patio will be perfumed as well as decorated with delicious golden fruit. #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold #selfseed

Passionfruit 'Panama Gold. Yippee. The rain has brought on 15 New fruit. Only had 5 (next post) up to this point. From the first rainfall a week ago, the vine started flowering. Steady rain has increased the crop. A bit of feed now and hopefully, another abundant crop. I love this fruit and am down to my last six frozen from the last crop. #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold

Golden Panama Passionfruit. Been diligently monitoring these ripening passionfruit, the first of the season, and watching out for the Cockatoos that will eat and destroy if they get them before I do. Crop has been a bit sparse until the rain. #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold

Passionfruit 'Panama Gold. Today's garden surprise. When everyrhing is looking dry and drooping, the passionfruit vine is racing along the fence after its winter trim. Big surprise to find 3 passionfruit, I did not notice any flowers. The whole process from flower to fruit must have taken place while I was on holiday. Promising start for another good crop. #passionfruit #passionfruitpanamagold

@Cyndi Panama Gold passionfruit is much sweeter than the purple passionfruit. Taste is tangy, combination of strawberry and lime. Crunchy seeds add interest. Sweet citrus aroma is a delight to the senses. Sharp, tangy flavour creates a taste contrast with sweetness of pavlova, mango, icecream, icing and added to lemon butter (lemon curd). 🌞☀️💛

Passionfruit, Panama Gold. Keeping a daily watch on the fruit that is turning gold, so are the birds.

Passionfruit vine. Panama Gold. @gauravsh6 This is my vine growing on a fence approx 10 ft /3mt long. Side of fence faces east, backs west. Lower end of fence is north. Growing to get sun from every direction. Have to "round it up" each day otherwise it would cover trees in next garden. At my last larger property, I let it grow over the fence and up 3 wattle trees. The cockatoos and goannas enjoyed the golden bounty as much as myself and the neighbours. ...

... in the right conditions Panama Gold is a great producer. We have had an unusual, continual supply of good rain since October which is helping. Although I do not see any indication of the crop slowing down, now that we are heading to winter, I expect it will soon.🙃 #passionfruitpanamagold #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold

@pixierose well, between May-July we turn the fans off and go from sleeping under just a sheet to a blanket or light cover as well and occasionally hot water bottle or electric blanket. The summer clothes I wore in London are my winter clothes in Qld. Have to admire what the Brits go through to keep their gardens going through the long winters and once the snow melts. 🙃🌞

Passionfruit 'Panama Gold' This is when you know your passionfruit is ripe when it is on the ground, fallen off after ripening on the vine. This is exciting. First passionfruit off this vine planted 2017. On daily watch for the rest of the ripening harvest. Pavlova shell is ready, have to make some ice cream now. Yummy 😁😎🌞🌝🙃 #passionfruitpanamagold #passionfruit #passionfruit-panamagold

@Annettenoosa are these the type of passion fruit that you get in the shops all brown and crinkled or is it a different variety? I had one with this colour fruits and I wasn’t sure if they were edible or not. 🤔😊🙏🏼

2w
comment
Annettenoosa

@pixierose no, this is a 'golden' passionfruit. I have not seen these with wrinkled skin, probably because the flesh is a bit thicker than the purple. The wrinkled one is probably a purple one. The wrinkling is normal after they have been off the vine a while and is perfectly ok. Not sure about brown colour though. The inside flesh should be nice and thick with plenty of jelly around the crisp, crunchy seeds. I prefer the sweeter taste of the golden passionfruit and they are generally larger.

comment
pixierose

@Annettenoosa Thank you 🙏🏼 I say brown but they do have a purple tint to them. I never knew about the yellow being edible! I’ll have to try one. My friend has one. Do the fruit have to drop off to know when they’re ready? 😊🙏🏼👍🏼

The fruit changes colour when it is ripe. Green fruit is not ready to eat. Best way of ensuring ripe is when the fruit drops off the vine. I do a daily watch when I know the fruit is ready to drop. 😊

@gauravsh6 😂🤣 Here in the sub-tropics, as long as the fence it grows on. Had one growing on a pergola at my previous property. After a few months away, returned to find the vine had covered the patio and grown over the back half of the roof of the house. Spent 3 days pulling it down and ended up with a pile of vine that could fill a semi trailer. Got a ton of passionfruit too. In a smaller garden now, smaller fence. 😊
