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.
Soak the seeds for 24 hours in orange- or lemonjuice, then sow them in sowing mix. Keep the soil constantly moist, cover with plastic foil or glass and let the seeds germinate in a warm and bright spot indoors. Germination can take a few weeks or months.
