The last post was about two weeks ago. I had to be away for days, back home and then out again, which effectively disrupt my gardening plans, and blogging too. The pictures were taken 3 days ago with fruits getting much bigger. Even my car doesn't look so shiny. So nature has it's own way of wax polishing!
Passion fruits are green in colour with little white spots randomly distributed all over. The shape is almost round. The remnants of the old flower still visible, drying up at the top portion of the fruits, while the little old stigma visible at the bottom.

The other day I did a bit of weeding, put top soil around the root area and
placed kantan leaves as ground cover.
Soon the fruits will change colour, green to yellowish green.
I am watching closely.
