Passiflora tarminiana (or banana passionfruit) is a species of passionfruit. This is a nice Tacsonia which will flourish from the autumn until the first cold and will reward you with its clear white flowers with slightly pale gold stripes. The yellow fruits are edible and their resemblance to small, straight bananas has given it the name banana in some countries. Passiflora tarminiana belongs to the Tacsonia subgenus of Passiflora. It has been known under a number of different names and was only formally described in 2001.Passiflora tarminiana is distinguished from P. tripartita var. mollissima by a number of features. P. tarminiana has small deciduous stipules while P. tripartita var. mollissima has larger, persistent stipules. The sepals and petals in P. tarminiana are perpendicular to the floral tube or are reflexed, whereas they are never so open in P. tripartita var. mollissima. They are also both much shorter in relation to the length of the floral tube in P. tripartita var. mollissima than in P. tarminiana. Vines growing up to 30 feet. Hardy in zones 7-9.
