The bananadilla thanks its name to the tasteful oblong yellow fruits. It is also called the banana-passionflower. The pink flowers hang elegantly from long stalks. The stalks and leaves are hairy and perish in autumn in temperate climates. Because the species grows in the Andes up to an altitude of 3600 meters, it is resistant to lower temperatures up to a minimum of -3 degC. In nature the plant is evergreen and grow up to 20 m in height. It is a beautiful climbing plant.

2 zaden in potje gedaan op 1 maart. Vandaag 16 maart is er 1 van de 2 uitgekomen. De andere kan ik helaas nergens meer vinden. Ook hier erg te vrede en benieuwd hoe het gaat vorderen.
