How long do passionfruit vines normally last? Ours is starting to look rather decrepit after several years of heavy fruiting. Last year it was infested with passionvine hoppers and it did not produce much fruit. Thanks.

Hi Janene,

We would recommend planting new passionfruit vines every 4-5 years (keep in mind it does take a year for a new plant to give you fruit) to get the best out of your vine. Passion vine hoppers can be controlled with Diamataceous Earth, although if a plant is already under stress it will be more susceptible to insect infestations and disease. To reduce the stress of the passionfruit vine, ensure it gets plenty of liquid fertiliser and plenty of water in the summer months.

Thanks the Palmers Team
