Passion Fruit
updated: Nov 06, 2012, 4:56 PM

Where can I buy Passion Fruit from a local farmer? I would like to buy a box. I know they are grown in Carpinteria but the farmer I contacted is sold out. Thanks.

959, can they be grown here? If so, will they grow well in planters?

Our passion fruit is going bonkers on the Westside. Bumper crop this year: lots of passion fruit margaritas and sorbet.

959 here, we got at least 2 5g buckets of passion fruit off one plant. But not all years have they done that well.

We let the plants grown on fences and they do just fine. So yes they grow here. In a container? Can't help you, ours are in the ground.

I used to make frozen juice cubes to add as flavoring or use the whole fruit to make jam, it is not a quick process.

Check the farmers' markets. Goodland Organics sometimes has them, as does a few other random other growers, but yes the season is almost done. Lazy Acres usually has some from somewhere but they are always expensive there.

Gladden & Sons next to the water store in Goleta/Hollister Ave. had a display today. Local, pesticide free.
