Default Passion fruits again (same passiofruit)

Same passionfruit saga,the main vine bore fruit in dec January or so,
the off shoots continued with the little yellow ones for a while, they
have now stopped BUT the big ones have stayed the same colour (green)
for months and months (up to four or five months) it is now winter
(Couridjah) are they waiting for summer?

Possibly. How old

SWMBO has just taken the reaper hook to the top of ours to encourage it
to produce more in spring. It took about three years before ripish one
started falling off. The advice is you really need two plants to get good
fruiting. We really need to try that, but the second one is still going
for the slowest growth championships.

About three years but they have been this size green and hard for four
months or so at a guess
