Passionfruit is one of the most rewarding plants you can grow in the garden.

  • You only need one plant to produce large crops of delicious, tangy, round black passionfruit during the vine's lifespan of 8 to 10
  • In 1958, the name 'Nellie Kelly' became one of the first plants in Australia to be trade marked.
  • The vine is grafted onto a vigorous rootstock (Passiflora caerulea) that gives the plant tolerance to temperature extremes and makes it highly resistant to pest and soil-borne disease.
