Only heard of 'Granadilla' as a generic term, not all the variations. At one time a nursery I worked at sold Granadilla and I took one home and promptly killed it. Not even seen the fruit :-( Interested to hear what others have found, it's about 30 years since then and a lot of new plants have been imported and propagated here so who knows what's about now.

yes Elaine I was intrigued to find there was more than one granadilla  I had always granadilla was just  the Spanish word for passion fruit. Hope someone has grown some - will be interesting to see !
