It will still grow quite large and fill a large sunny window or the vertical space in a greenhouse quite quickly. Leaves are a beautiful glossy green and make a beautiful backdrop to the stunning passion flowers that give way to deep purple egg shaped fruits. Fruits of Black Knight are particularly tasty with a spicy sour zing to balance out the sweetness. It’s everything you could want in a passionfruit in a beautiful compact form!
