Hi Doug,

impossible to pinpoint exactly without seeing the symptoms, passionfruit don't really get rust. It could be a fungal problem and a spray such as mancozeb may help. However these problems usually occur when other factors such as poor nutrition, lack of water or bad drainage are present. Take a leaf in a sealed plastic bag to your nursery horticulturist to see if it is a fungal spot. would suggest looking at fertilising and watering details and apply some seaweed tonic.
