AbstractEvaluates the performance of Passiflora incarnata as a fruit crop grown in the field in upstate New York. Plants flowered in the summer and were pollinated by carpenter bees. However, fruit set was low without hand-pollination. There were high levels of variability in the growth, architecture, flowering, and fruit production.
