After a night with a low of 23 my litchi tomato and gotu kola passed with flying colors. My passaflora edulis looks a little damaged, but is still alive. I thought I would share this info, in case anyone in similar zones is planning on growing these.

I took another look outside just now. My Passion Fruit is looking worst. I really hope it comes back from the roots. The Litchi Tomato looks to have new growth on it, very odd.

So I was about to write you a post saying that if my maypop passionfruit can survive in boston,ma zone 6/7 then your will, lol.
But now I realize that I have incarnata and you have edulis

Here is info on my maypop passionfruit. http://www.onegreenworld.com//product_info.php?cPath=6_155&products_id=2084

I actually did plant maypop as well. It looks unharmed by the low 20's. I planted three. One was in full sun and it did poorly in our dry heat. The one in part shade did very well. I wonder if they can cross pollinate each other?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/email
