Passionfruit, Elite, W1

Day 1: This is one of several cheap passionfruit plants I planted (maybe ~$5NZ at most). There are two varieties, Elite and Black Beauty. I am sure the fruit is indistinguishable, and any difference is purely for marketing purposes..

Day 14: Just two weeks, and there's significant growth. I bought a trellis from Bunnings (for around $20NZ I think) and borrowed a suitable drill, and mounted it for the passionfruit to grow up.

Day 29: Almost a month, and the passionfruit is already halfway up the trellis.

Day 56: Nearly two months, and this isn't far off where it stopped growing.

It's still looking pretty good, and hasn't suffered any damage in the few frosts we've had so far this winter. Hopefully will get some fruit off it later in the year.
