Passiflora Laurifolia, known as water lemon of Jamaican Honeysuckle, is an edible fruit in the passion fruit genus that is native to the tropical Americas. Like other passion flowers, it has amazing ornamental flowers. This plant is well worth growing anywhere it can be kept from freezing. The tasty fruits have a white pulp that is saturated with mild flowery juice covered by an orange skin. It is a must for all passion flower collectors, and it should be a great choice for anyone who is into growing fruit.

Growing Information: The seeds should be sown at a depth of 1/8” in a fertile well-draining soil. However, it can tolerate a range of different soils. You may wish to scarify the seed coat and soak the seeds in water for a day prior to sowing. Maintain a temperature of about 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Bottom heat is recommended. Germiantion can take up to 10 weeks. Mature vines can grow to 30 feet in length, so support is needed for the plants to climb. They can tolerate variable water conditions, but they tend to prefer higher humidity.
