An Act of Desperation
Every morning I am greeted with more passionfruit munched on by Mr Possum so in an act of desperation despite all research suggesting otherwise, I picked some of the passionfruit (the ones that had most 'yellow' amid the dark green). An experiment to see if they do indeed ripen off the vine... placing them strategically close to the mandarins/oranges in the hope that the ethylene gas they emit would aid in the ripening... one can only hope...
