Nellie Kelly Passionfruit Non Grafted Black is a hardy climber that will grow rapidly throughout spring and summer. Beautiful large purple and white flowers in spring are followed by around 100 deep purple or black passionfruit during the hot summer months. The medium-sized round fruit have a tangy, tart pulp that will sweeten if left to fully ripen on the vine.
Non-grafted vines are recommended for gardens with coarse or sandy soils, where grafted vines would be prone to suckering. These vines thrive in warmer, tropical areas where frost is not a problem.
