The vine is propagated through seed, cuttings and grafting. A seedling is ready for transplanting once the vine attains a height of 15-30 cm after 3-4 months.One full grown passion vine has the ability to produce up to 50 kg of fruits per year if it is supplied with the correct nutrients during the transplanting stage.
Husbandry practices of passion plant: The crop has a slow growth during the first 5 months of its life cycle therefore regular weeding is needed for vigorous growth. Injury to the plant during weeding should be avoided as bacteria and fungi will get entry to the plant through the wounds. Once the vine has been transplanted, 4 laterals grow from the main vine. Sometimes they may fail to grow, force them by pinching the shoot tip. The laterals are trellised on a 14 gauge galvanized wire stretched along the tops of posts whose diameter is 18 cm, 3 meter long and its base buried to a depth of 50-80 cm. Inter-row spacing of the vines should be maintained at 2 meters while intra row spacing should be 3 meters. This gives a plant population of about 670 per acre
Harvesting passion: Fruits drop to the ground when fully mature and are collected every second day. At this stage, they are shriveled which is the best condition for manufacturing. For the fresh market, the fruits are harvested when ripe just before shriveling. Growing sweet yellow passion plant/vine is a good economic opportunity in
