Passion fruits pruning involves regular removal of tendrils which causes the vine to entangle, to ensure that lateral side branches hang down freely. Any side lateral trailing on the ground should be cut back 15cm from the ground. After harvest side laterals should be cut back to a newly developing laterals as close to the main leader as possible. Where no new side shoots have formed the exhausted lateral should be cut at 3rd to 5th node from the main leader. Keep the field free of weeds all the time and you may intercrop with a low growing annual crop during the first year. Irrigation will keep the crop growing and flowering throughout most of the year increasing yields. Passion fruits come into maturity 6-8 months after transplanting. The main harvest is obtained 12-13 months after planting. Pick only ripe purple passion fruits from the vine. The economic life of a well maintained orchard is about 5 years.
