Training and pruning of passion fruit (Passiflora edulis Sims) in Kenya


, : Training and pruning of passion fruit (Passiflora edulis Sims) in Kenya. Acta Horticulturae (49): 219-222

In preliminary observations on the economic life of passion fruit vines the following training methods were studied: (a) along 2 wires in opposite directions with no pruning and (b), (c) and (d) along 1, 2 and 3 wires, respectively, the laterals being allowed to hang freely by the regular removal of tendrils, and then being removed after fruiting, to allow the new laterals to develop.

The plants were spaced at 3 m within the row, with 0.6, 1.2, 1.8, 2.4, 3.0 or 3.6 m between the rows. Spacing of 1.8 x 3 m is currently recommended for small-scale farmers. The total and marketable (processing) fruit yields increased with reduced...
