FALEIRO, Fábio Gelape et al. Advances in passion fruit (Passiflora spp.) propagation. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.2, e-155.  Epub Apr 25, 2019. ISSN 1806-9967.

The propagation of many passion fruit species (Passiflora spp.) is done by seeds or sexual method, although asexual propagation, such stem cuttings, grafting or tissue culture is also possible and very useful in many cases. In this work, it was presented information on scientific and technological advances in sexual and asexual propagation of passion fruit, considering the different propagation methods and their applications. New demands for research and development activities are also related, given the wide range of passion fruit species and its potential for food, ornamental and medicinal use.

Keywords : seed germination; vegetative propagation; cuttings; grafting; tissue culture.
