Passionfruit is a popular fruit in Australia that is predominantly grown in Queensland. Nonetheless, since they are subtropical plants, and their popularity, they may be grown in all parts of Australia. However, in colder areas, they need to be provided with a warm and sunny sheltered spot so that they are able to thrive properly. If one wants to plant a vine, then it is best to do so between spring and early fall so that the warmth will allow it to flourish. In fact, the majority of Australia’s passionfruit is destined for the fresh market.

Even though the majority of passionfruit is grown in Queensland, there are many other states that are growing this fruit. They are Cooktown/Daintree, Mareeba, Wide Bay, the Sunshine Coast and Tweed Valley.
Passion fruit is rich in antioxidants, which are compounds that help to mop up harmful free radicals in the body. Antioxidants play a vital role in keeping the body systems healthy. Scientists know that antioxidants improve blood flow, specifically to the brain and nervous system. They also reduce cellular stress and reduce inflammation in the body, both of which have links to diseases, such as heart disease and many other diseases.
