Q.Passion Fruit Vine problems

Zone Fairfield, Victoria 3078 Australia | marc.ocarroll@yahoo.com.au added on January 9, 2018 | Answered

Our very well established Vive seems to be having serious issues! The vine has fruit and lots of new growth but has quickly become wilted in the past week. No yellowing of leaves just wilting and shrivelling of the fruit. We don’t water the leaves and have kept a decent amount of compost and mulch on it’s feet. It has companion plants of self seeded tomatoes and a healthy chili plant growing in close proximity. Help! We don’t want to lose it!

Because you mentioned that you have self-seeding tomatoes near your passion vines I would have suspected a problem with Root Knot Nematodes (something to which passion vines as well as tomatoes are highly susceptible), but, without seeing a photo of the vine, I cannot be sure about that. But you definitely should contact your local Cooperative Extension for assistance in getting a diagnosis. Most cooperative extension services are free (or will help you for a minimal cost if a specimen needs to be sent to their university labs).
