Its special, attractive purple color, flavor and tenderness distinguish this variety from others. Our field trial confirms all of these attributes with taste tests conducted here. In addition, our trials indicate Purple Passion has productive yields. For best performance, plant spacing for Purple Passion is 12" – 14" inches apart in the row instead of the usual 12-inch spacing.
