Here, I am offering Seeds of Passiflora edulis Toms special. This Hybrid gives you superior fruit and strong resistance to disease. This variety was used to breed some of the sweet passion fruits that we find in fine restaurants today.This is a host plant for the Zebra Long Wing, Zebra Heliconian, Julia Heliconian, Isabellas Heliconian, Banded Orange Heliconian, Mexican Fritillary, Scarce Bamboo Page, Erato Heliconian, Variegated Fritillary, and Gulf Fritillary butterflies. It is also a larval host plant for the Plebeian sphinx Moth. This is an F1 seed, meaning that the cross pollination was done and then the seeds were collected from those first generation plants. If you gather the seed from this fruit and try to grow a vine you will not get the same fruit. Almost all of the seedlings grown from the fruit will revert back to one of the parents, and sometimes you will find some strange results. After the cross pollination happens, the first plants grown from the F1 seeds have something called hybrid vigor. These seeds will grow a plant with hybrid vigor, but if you collect the seeds and grow them you will not get the same results. The best tasting and most disease resistant plants are F1 hybrids. Professionally gathered and dried by a fantastic horticulturalist. USDA Hardiness Zones 9 to 11
