I have a limited number of fruit available if someone would like to try one for fresh seeds. These seeds germinate well. I can send one ripe fruit for a SASBE with $1 postage as these are heavier than seeds without the fruit. Be sure the Bubble envelope is large enough to hold something slightly larger than a golf ball. LOL. Non-Bubble envelopes will be returned. This is an unknown passi that has done excellent for me and after 4 yrs in the ground has proven to be non-invasive, at least here.
The flower is solid white and very fragrant. It is self fertile and sets fruit well.
I will limit the offer to the first 12 responders and will extend it as more ripens. I would like a progress report in a couple years to see if the seedlings come true to the mother or revert back. I believe it may be an edulis cross.

Jan, do you have any of the fruit left? Is it 1 per person or can we get more and pay more postage?I'd like to try it for the lattice fence. I'd start it in the greenhouse though. Any instructions?
Let me know and I'll get it in the mail.
I didn't realize that many seeds and that good of germination. One would be fine unless you have extra.
Please dmail me your address and if 2 would be OK where I'd get one for me and one for a friend that would be fine.
You can start them indoors anytime. Germination has been running 3-6 weeks as long as it is warm enough. A heat pad would be best up north. I can't remember that far back but I don't believe I got fruit till the second year.
The fruit are gone but I just cleaned and dried the seeds from the last of it. Please send a BUBBLE envelope with
3 first class stamps or $1.00 cash and I'll use a recycled bubbled envelope.
I also just harvested some solid yelllow Pride of Barbados or Dwarf Poinciana if you'd like to try a few of those too.
Any seeds left? I'd be glad to send you some seeds I have plus the postage for the seeds.
Not in my trade list yet, but have Beauty Berry, Mexican Sunflower, Red Salvia,(not a lot but some, and some Mealy Cup Sage, (with chaff..tiny seeds that are hard to seperate), I also will have some Pipevine.
Let me know,
