I can finally say I grow a fruit other than Citrus. I was out pruning my Passion Vine fruit out of my Fragrant Oleander, and look what I found!!! So Question? How can you tell when Passion Fruit is ripe enough to eat. This is the 'Frederick' Passion Vine.

My passion vine fruit would always turn a shade of yellow, always varying... I think that's right?? I dunno, I'm tired, I just got home from work... lol

So, do you pull it off when it turns yellow and eat it? I saw when I googled, they mentioned not eating it till it falls off the vine. I also saw a different one that said when it starts turning yellow, remove it, put it in your kitchen window, and when it starts getting dimpled, and looks like it's drying out on the outside, that is when it's ripe.

That sounds right Alan. If you have ever seen them in the store they are usually dimpled.

They actually take quite a while to ripen. Ive even had them overwinter on the vine waiting for ripening.
Dimpling is the most sure sign, in my opinion.
