Germination of

Passiflora tripartita var. mollissima

Banana Passion Fruit: Banana Berry, Banana Granadilla, Banana Maracuya, Yellow Passion Fruit, Sweet Banana Passionfruit

Passiflora tripartita var. mollissima

Banana passion fruit seeds need to be removed from the fruit pulp and cleaned before planting. Plant the seeds in well-draining soil, about 1/2 inch deep. Keep the soil consistently moist and place the container in a warm, sunny location. Germination typically occurs within 3 to 4 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
