Proceedings of the 2022 Passion fruit Conference


Eric T. Stafne


We are pleased to deliver these proceedings of the passion fruit conference that was held in Homestead, Florida on June 14 and 15, 2022. It was a culmination of a lot of hard work by many people, most of them listed in the previous page. However, it would not have been a success without the attendees who came from various parts of the country to share their experiences growing passion fruit. What follows in these proceedings are the slides of the presentations with by notes taken by attendees along with notes taken of discussion regarding the five priority topic areas: Breeding/Genetics, Insect/Disease, Horticulture Production, Marketing/Economics, and Extension/Education. While these proceeding constitute a record of what transpired over those two days, it is not the end of the discussion. Moving forward we hope to engage you all on the best direction to take for more and better passion fruit production in the United States, as well as collaborating with others in other countries. To do this, we will need your continued support and future assistance. We are committed to research, teaching, and outreach for passion fruit in the U.S. and beyond.
