Passiflora edulis

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Also known as Blue Passionflower, Bluecrown Passionflower, Common Passion Flower

Passiflora Purple Passion Flower, scientifically known as Passiflora edulis and commonly referred to as passion fruit, is a vine species of passionflower originating from southern Brazil and Peru. Cultivated commercially in tropical and subtropical regions, it is cherished for its sweet, seedy fruit. The fruit, classified as a pepo or berry, is round to oval in shape and can be either yellow or dark purple when ripe. Its interior ranges from soft to firm and juicy, packed with numerous seeds. Passion fruit is consumed both fresh and juiced, with its juice often blended with other fruit juices to enhance aroma. Interestingly, the name of this plant comes from its similarities with the Passion of Christ’s crucifixion.
