Answer: Dear Jan,

It appears that you are doing all the right things to make your passionfruit vines healthy, it is just a pity one isn’t performing as it should. Because passionfruit vines are rapid grower, they need to be feed regularly. This spring try applying a well balanced fertiliser such as Thrive Granular Plant Food for Citrus. This product is rich in nitrogen and potassium for abundant fruiting. It also contains the essential elements that the vine will need to produce sweet juicy fruit. Make sure the vines receive adequate water particularly when they are flowering and setting fruit. Hopefully this year both your vines will give you sweet juicy fruit.
