    I have a few passion fruit vines growing in a large pot in a lean-in that’s against the house, kind of like a small greenhouse but there’s no heating. They really took off this summer and started climbing up the wall, really beautiful.

    I know temperatures drop to around 50°F in there in winter, will passion fruit lose its leaves when it gets that cold? We grew them from seeds in store-bought fruits, so I’m quite sure they come from a tropical breed… Watcha think?

    Definitely they’re going to let go of their leaves during winter. Take time to prune weak and dead stems in early spring. Did you know they’re going to climb on whatever standing near it if planted outside? Being in a pot means they need space and something to climb on. What have you got? How big is your space?

    Have you already had fruits? How long will it take before they bear?

    @redcape no, no fruits yet, I was really excited last week because I saw two blooms, see pic below, but one fell out a few days later. Crossing my fingers for the other one…
