Passionfruit are vigorous vines, growing from 6-10 m tall. Grow the vine in full sun, sheltered from cold winds.

Crops are produced from late autumn to early summer, when ripe, the fruit will fall to the ground. Prune in late winter to thin over-vigorous growth. Sow seed in spring and summer when the soil temperature reaches more than 20°C. A strong support is needed for the vine to grow on.

Tamarind H
Tamarindus indica
Tamarind is an evergreen tree, 18 - 25 m in height, native to tropical Africa. It is a traditional shade tree of villages in Africa and India. It is grown for its edible pods, which are dark brown and sweet when ripe. The leaves and flowers are also eaten. The timber is strong and termite-proof, used for furniture and tool handles. Tamarind likes a dry, sandy soil and is tolerant of drought and coastal conditions. It needs a seasonal dry season to encourage flowering. Young trees are frost tender, however they develop more cold tolerance as they mature. Sow seed in spring, or during the wet season, soil temperature should be at least 25°C for good germination. Suitable for subtropical and tropical areas.

Asian and Tropical Vegetables For Hot Wet Summers
If you are challenged by pest and disease problems in your vegetable garden during hot, humid summers, don’t give up! Green Harvest offers a range of vegetables, grown around the world in subtropical and tropical areas, that we have found to be hardy and reliable to the weather extremes of high temperature and humidity experienced in the ‘wet season’. As a general rule sow these vegetables from October through to March, to replace more temperate varieties. Seeds suitable for subtropical and tropical conditions are marked H for hot and humid!

Part of the problem is gardening books written by authors from cooler areas neglecting to give good advice on plant selection for northern areas of Australia. We recommend the books The Seed Savers Handbook or Organic Vegetable Gardening for the best information on subtropical vegetables.
