Passion fruit seeds

Put the sieve under running water. Rub the seeds against the wire mesh with the back of a spoon to remove the colored gel that surrounds them. The gel contains substances that can inhibit germination, so it’s important to remove it.

Cut open the smashed fruit with a sharp knife. Scoop out the soft pulp containing the seeds. Put the pulp into a clean bowl. Pick out the seeds and put them in a fine mesh metal sieve.

Put the fruit into a small bowl and smash it. Let the smashed fruit sit in the bowl for two days.

Pick passion fruit when they have turned color or pick up fallen fruit from the ground. Allow fruit to continue to ripen for a week or two in a spot with bright light. Not all seeds are mature enough to germinate when the fruit is ripe.

Put the seeds in a cup with clean water. Discard any seeds that float to the top of the water. Empty the water and remaining seeds into the cleaned sieve. Drain excess water from the seeds.

Passion fruit (Passiflora spp.) comes from vines native to American tropics, where there are about 500 different species. The flowers, called passion flowers, are intricate, with colors of white, yellow, pink, purple, red and blue. Plants have fleshy oval fruits, and fruits from around 40 species are edible. Edible passion fruit (P. edulis) has both purple and yellow forms. Other species grow as ornamentals. Maypop (P. incarnata) is native to the southeastern United States and grows in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 10. Most other species are subtropical and tropical and need frost-free climates, with hardiness zones varying by species.

Put the seeds on a paper towel and blot them dry. Plant them immediately for best germination success. Allow them to dry completely in a shaded area if you plan to store them, but realize that this will trigger seed dormancy and decreased germination rates. Store the dried seeds in paper envelopes.
