Why are the passionfruits falling off the vine before ripening

My passionfruit vine has lots of fruit but they all fall off before the ripen - why? It's very healthy looking

Dear Sally,

It is a shame that your passionfruit are falling before they ripen. It could be that the weather is not yet warm enough to keep them growing to reach maturity. It is still a little early in the season, particularly if you have been experiencing rather cool weather. Extended periods of inclement weather could also play a part. As the weather warms up, I am sure your vine will continue to produce an abundance of flowers and give you lots of fruit during the summer months ahead.
