Well, I’ve finally done it. I’ve grown a goddamn passion fruit.
I’ve been eyeing them with increasing impatience over the last few weeks, since they ostensibly turn dark before falling off the vine and then have an additional ripening period after that. I mean, I don’t want to tell them how to do it or anything, but I’m pretty sure they’re taking too long.
And then! This morning! This one was totally green about three or four days ago and slowly started to turn ruddy.
This morning it was laying on the ground, which is apparently normal: they fall, you pick them up. Another reason to love passion fruit. Laziest harvest ever. Bitchin! Now it sits in a windowsill and waits to turn wrinkled, at which point it is done and we will fall upon it with the torpid bloodlust of a morally obstinate vampire finally allowed to marry a teenage girl.
Speaking of predatory!
