YIKES!  Shocked We have been growing Passion Vine for the Gulf Fritillaries for the past 2 years. This is the first year they've produced fruit and our bushes are loaded. What do I do with them? When are they ripe? HELLLLLLP!

Lucky!!!  From my experience and from the California Rare Fruit Growers website, depending on the type you have; Yellow is common here in my neighborhood:

"Harvest: The fruit will quickly turn from green to deep purple (or yellow) when ripe and then fall to the ground within a few days. They can either be picked when they change color or gathered from the ground each day.  ...  The fruit is sweetest when slightly shriveled."

Yellow is what we have. What does it taste like? We will definitely wait until it shrivels. I like everything as sweet as possible. Waiting . . . waiting . . . bounce

Lilikoi! drooling

I'm one of the few folks in the world who prefers passionfruit as an ingredient in something, rather than enjoying it as a stand alone fruit. It has a warm, tropical flavor, which blends well with many things.  Pinterest has hundreds of yummy passionfruit recipes - some of 'em are even healthy. Cool

Enjoy!

Passion fruit, i.e., lilikoi here in Hawaii is one of my very favorite flavors.  We pick the fruit when ripe, either yellow or purple, and slice in half, remove pulp into a blender, blend it up, strain through a sieve.  You can then freeze the pulp or use immediately.  Use in a pie instead of lemon juice (as lemon meringue) or as an ingredient in cheese cake..  We use it in many recipes.

Here is a caterpillar feasting on our passion vine. In previous years, there wasn't a leaf left by the end of summer. This year we haven't seen a frit yet -- possibly all the rain this spring gave them too many other banquets to choose from. Wink

I think the best word to describe passion vine is "exuberant." With our mild winters, there's nothing stopping these babies. What's even more exuberant than the passion vines, are the fritillaries. Those hungry little caterpillars will strip a big, healthy passion vine in no time flat. Razz What's really amazing is how the decimated passion vine comes back as if nothing happened -- bigger and healthier than ever. Cool

I now remember we planted a passion vine in 1996. It did well all summer but didn't survive the frost. Same with the bougainvillea.

Yup, a bad winter can kill them. Sad They can lose their leaves in a moderate winter. Ours have been fine for 2 years. Note to self: Protect them from hard freezes. Shocked

Mine are all shriveled up on the vine. We broke into a few and there was no flesh. The goop around the seeds is nice and sweet but there's not enough of it to fool with and the seeds are awful. The chickens will get the rest. Very disappointing.

Time to experiment! We must have at least a bushel of fruit, just hanging there. I pick a few each day for the chickens, but this is a terrible waste. I'm going to try making "Passion Fruit Nectar" and also juice some for our smoothies. Off I go -- news at 11. Rolling Eyes

I didn't know it was a sleep aid. We just grow it for the butterflies. Time to do some research, since Hubby has severe sleep apnea and insomnia. geek
