A protocol for in vitro propagation in yellow passionfruit (Passiflora edulis F. flavicarpa Deg) has been developed. Shoot apices from aseptically grown seedlings were used as initial explants. Multiple shoot formation was obtained by placing the explants on solidified Murashige and Skoog medium containing BA. Regenerated shoots were rooted on media without growth regulators. Following conventional procedures, plantlets were transferred to soil with more than 90% success. Chemical name used: N-(phenylmethyl)-lH-purin-6-amine (BA).
