Snap - I’ve even tasted the fruit on mine - they go orange and then brown - then you eat them- mine have never gone brown before but maybe this year 🤔👍

@sharonhayden I think mine have a bit more growing to do. Then it's a question of having enough time & good weather for them to ripen I suppose. How did they taste by the way?

Ha ha! I think I know what you mean. Maybe a bit better than eating soap! 😄 You've not put me off though. If mine do ripen I will try one 😋😁 @sharonhayden

Thanks folks. First flower of many I hope 🙏 Getting it through winter is always the biggest test, but I don't think we got lower than -5C, which was OK. The warm spring has really given it a kick start since, with lots of new growth on it & flower buds👍 @debs69 @ShelleySnyder @BillWatson @midnightgardener @sinukarta @linfoster @novicegardenlover & @kez001uk

These are fairly common, here anyway, as they're the hardiest variety of passiflora. Thanks Terri ☺ Covid19 has stopped all travelling for now. I'm hoping that will change though in the months to come 🤞 Then I can carry on with my ongoing midlife crisis 🤣 @terrimclaughlin 💕

@jeatacake What do you to over winter it Jeff? I remember Kez saying her Hibiscus lives indoors. It looks fabulous. I like my plants in the garden. But now I have a Hibiscus of my own it might have to come indoors in winter 😊😊
