The Sweet Sunrise Passion Fruit Plant (Passiflora edulis) gets its name from the sweet, bright yellow fruits this tropical vine produces. Sweet Sunrise Passion Fruit vines grow best upon structures such as trellises, fences, or arbors. The vines grow unusually intricate blooms that are fragrant and followed by the golden fruits which contain sweet edible pulp and juice. Sweet Sunrise Passion Fruit Plants can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 9 to 11, or in pots or hanging baskets in Zones 4 to 11 if over-wintered indoors.
Sweet Sunrise Passion Fruit Vines are fast growing and will often produce fruit in the first year after planting. Once mature, the shallow-rooted Sweet Sunrise Passion Fruit Vines can grow hundreds of Passion Fruits each year. The vigorus vines are great for covering fences or overhead arbors where they can provide not only delicious fruit, but natural camouflage and shade as well.
