Why doesn't my passionfruit ripen

I have a 3yr old passionfruit vine. Every year it fruits very well in the late spring and again in late summer. The only problem is that the fruit never ripen they end up turning yellow and falling off. What am I doing wrong

Fruit and Citrus • Plants

Hi Jemma,

the first thing I have to ask is if you are sure it isn't a yellow passionfruit variety. Perhaps check one of the fallen fruit to see if the pulp is edible when it falls. The plant may have been labelled incorrectly. As long as the plant is well fed Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food is great and watered and sheltered from strong winds, premature fruitfall should be minimised.
