Just like the Panama Red, the Hawaiian Yellow is a basic, non hybridized passionflower that thrives in tropical and sub tropical climates but can be grown in temperate regions as long as the roots are not allowed to freeze.
Being an heirloom variety, it strikes well from seed if the seed is fresh. It grows quickly, so if the seed is planted in winter or early spring you can almost guarantee bucket loads of fruit in autumn.
Make sure you allow enough room for it to spread and flourish.
This is not Banana Passionfruit. They will be available from late summer 2010.
The fruit is slightly more acid than the red, which suits some taste buds much better.
