Passion fruit in the UK?

InglezinhoInglezinho Posts: 560
Is it possible to fruit any passion flower (Passiflora) in the UK? I have a conservatory, but it is not heated. We have a blue passion flower (Passiflora coerulea) in the garden but the fruit is not edible.

  • The common caerulea grows rampantly against a sunny house wall in very poor soil.  It fruits heavily holding its orange fruits like christmas tree decorations.  The fruit make an excellent jelly type jam.
    If it likes the situation though it will throw up seedlings everywhere and we have found it very invasive.
