The Purple Possum passion fruit is borne on very fast growing vines, reaching 20-50 or more feet in a single summer. They are tropical in appearance and have magnificent showy spider-like purple and white flowers. The flowers are superb for any garden. They can take full sun or partial shade. The fruits are very sweet and are excellent in shakes and fresh, out-of-hand. The fruit is slightly oval, having a shell-like purple rind.
