Bob Holzinger, a local expert on Passion Fruit, will teach us all about this wonderful vine, how to grow, propagate, different varieties and so forth. He really knows his stuff!


If you have come before, you know that there usually is something more to be learned and to be done. If all goes well, we will also eat a bunch of Mangoes and Jim will show you how to retrieve the seed and what to do for great success in making it grow.

Bring Mangoes if you can.....


Meeting are the 3rd Sunday of the month starting at 3pm. We will present and practice different propagation techniques throughout the year, including grafting, air layering, starting plants from seed, cuttings and so forth. More details about each meeting are announced closer to the date.
We always like to share refreshments, so, bring what you got. Donations are highly appreciated to cover cost of materials we purchase, such as seeds, potting soil, printing of handouts and so forth.

    Hi, i bought a passion fruit plant from Bob during this meeting. It's been thriving until the leaves started wilting out of nowhere. I haven't done anything different. Can anyone provide some tips? I water it daily.

      Stephanie is right on. The only things I water daily are new seeds or cuttings that don't have roots. So assuming you've got a bona fide plant, water once it's semi-dry, using your finger as a moisture meter. Better yet, plant it in the ground and watch it grow! I've found passion fruit to not grow well in heavy clay (big surprise huh), once it get going, it goes! Good luck! See you at a CRFG meeting.

    Letting everybody know: Bob is one of my mentors and a very knowledgeable fruit nut. Please show him the kindness and respect he deserves as one of our esteemed local legends. We are lucky to have him!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
