How to Hand Pollinate Passionfruit

Passion fruit is very easy to grow. If you have a family member, friend, neighbor, or co-worker who has passion fruit save yourself $30, ask for some passionfruit cuttings. Hydrate the cuttings in water and plant in soil (preferable against the fence, wall, patio) so there is room for the passionfruit plant to crawl on, or an area where you could put a trellis up.

1. You want to gently swab and collect pollen (yellow) from the anther.
2. You will now dab the pollen to the stigma (green area).
