Abstract
As a garden or ornamental plant, passion fruit (Passifiora edulis) has been grown in Kenya for a number of years, but large-scale cultivation for the manufacture of juice is a comparatively recent development. It was first planted on a commercial scale in Trans Nzoia in 1933 and in Sotik a few months later. The area devoted to this crop has since been considerably extended and is now approximately 1,000 acres, the chief districts being Trans Nzoia, Sotik, and, to a lesser extent, the neighbourhood of Nakuru.
