The dry season in the Central Highlands is hot and sunny for a long time, with rising temperatures causing passion fruit trees to often lack water. Therefore, people need to water fully and promptly for passion fruit trees to grow and develop well, limiting the effects of weather. When passion fruit trees lack juice, the fruit will become soft, the skin will be wrinkled, the flower setting rate will be poor, and crop productivity will decrease.

To water passion fruit trees effectively in the dry season, people need to apply the following measures:

Regularly check soil moisture by observing and checking the soil surface. Make sure the soil does not dry out.
Water in the early morning or late afternoon. Avoid watering at noon because high temperatures and hot weather will cause heat shock, affecting passion fruit trees.
Drip irrigation combined with overhead sprinkler irrigation is an effective method because it both saves water and provides timely water for passion fruit plants.

Growing organic passion fruit is a common trend among farmers today. Why? Because this tree is easy to grow and care for, it brings high economic efficiency. Farmers in Vietnam are also expanding passion fruit production for export to the world. But for passion fruit trees to meet high standards and meet customer requirements, planting and care need to be very careful. Below are techniques for growing organic passion fruit that meet export standards that you can refer to.

Standards required to grow organic passion fruit

To grow organic passion fruit successfully, there are 3 factors that Van Xuan Agri experts advise you to remember:

Climate and soil requirements:

Passion fruit is suitable for tropical and subtropical climates, so it is suitable for the climate in Vietnam. The plant needs to be planted in a place with an average temperature of 18 to 30 degrees Celsius, with enough light and shelter from the wind. The Central Highlands region is one of the most suitable places to grow passion fruit. Suitable soil for passion fruit ranges from red basalt soil, feralit, light loam soil to old sandy soil, with pH from 5.5 – 6.0 and good drainage.

Choose the right organic passion fruit variety:

Currently on the market there are many types of passion fruit varieties for you to choose from. It is necessary to choose good varieties, ensure quality, have clear packaging, labels, and origin to ensure the seedlings are disease-free, have good resistance, and limit common insects.

Planting time:

Passion fruit can be sown at any time of the year because it is easy to grow and care for. The most suitable time is from April to June every year, during the rainy season in the Central Highlands for the tree to grow better.

Instructions for preparing soil for growing organic passion fruit

To grow organic passion fruit trees successfully, you need to prepare a smooth, loose layer of soil on the surface by mixing it well with a little composted manure or a little phosphate fertilizer. However, you need to limit using too much fertilizer to avoid burning the roots of seedlings. After digging the hole, you need to sprinkle lime and stir well to treat the soil for about 1 month.

Organic passion fruit planting density depends on terrain, soil type and trellis type, but the appropriate density is 3 x 3m. If passion fruit trees are intercropped with other plants, the density can be maintained at 5 x 5m, 5 x 4m or 5 x 4m.

When the soil has enough moisture or has prepared an irrigation system, you need to add 0.5-1kg of phosphate fertilizer to 1 root and stir well before planting. To prevent flooding during the rainy season, pay attention to planting higher than the surface of the hole. You should also buy plastic cups to cover the plants to limit cricket bites and pour Bio medicine immediately after planting to prevent termites.

During the rainy season, you should spray your plants to prevent fungal diseases every 3 days. For plants to grow well, apply NPK 1-2 times a month and add organic fertilizer to plants once a month. At the stage of dividing branches and raising flowers and fruits, add flowering fertilizers, micronutrients, and other types of fertilizers to the tree.

How to care for passion fruit trees to grow quickly and healthily

To properly care for passion fruit plants, you need to do the following:

Regular watering: Passion fruit needs to be watered regularly to maintain soil moisture and help the plant grow better. However, you should not water too much to avoid flooding the plant.

Fertilize periodically: Fertilizing is a way to help passion fruit trees develop and grow better. You can use organic fertilizers such as manure or other organic fertilizers to fertilize the plants.

Check and treat pests: Pests such as leaf rollers, stem borers and rust can harm passion fruit trees. Check regularly and use pesticides to treat them if they appear.

Pruning: Regular pruning helps remove old, weak and ineffective branches, facilitates the growth of new branches and encourages the tree to produce flowers and fruit when growing organic passion fruit trees. When old branches are removed, new young branches can grow at a faster rate and are evenly distributed across the trellis surface, creating a more uniform and manageable tree structure. During the rainy season, pruning is considered an important activity to minimize the spread of pests and mold on trees.

Pruning leaves also helps increase light and ventilation in the trellis, making photosynthesis more effective. After harvest, proper pruning is important to maintain the health of the passion fruit tree and help it recover quickly from growth and fruit production.

You should cut off all the branches on the side of the trellis that have produced fruit to reduce the load on the tree and create conditions for new branches to grow. Leave the trunk and branches from the ground to the trellis to keep the tree growing and allow it to recover quickly. If the passion fruit tree is not completely pruned by the end of the year, it may experience growth and development problems. Weak old branches will hinder the growth of new branches and limit the tree’s productivity.

Adjust light: Passion fruit plants like strong and abundant light. If the plant is grown in an area that does not have enough natural light, you should use LED or other grow lights to support the plant.

Periodic care: You need to regularly protect the passion fruit tree from pests and provide the tree with enough necessary nutrients to help it grow better.

In short, properly caring for passion fruit trees will help the tree grow better and produce high yields. In addition, you need to regularly check and promptly handle problems with pests, light, soil and water to ensure the health and growth of the plant.

In addition, you can also research some more information about high-yield passion fruit varieties before you start ordering products.
