The fruit is edible
Reviewed By: Heidy (Arica, Chile)
What looks like a lime growing out of the flower is its fruit, and when matured (must luck wrinkle and much), the passion fruit you buy in the supermarket 1 for $3, so, next time give it time to mature,(cut in half and spoon the seeds) you get the amount of vitamin C in one passion fruit what you need with 6 oranges..

I haven't buy this plant from here, but I do have 2 that I grew from seeds brought from Puerto Rico....Jesse, you are so right....the fruit is delicious, and the juice is wonderful !! I grew up drinking this juice, and eating the fruits, and they are NOT only great, they do help to lower down high blood pressure, relax, and a lot of other benefits... Good news is that NOT only the fruit is edible, but the plant as well....you can dry leafs, smash them and make tea out of them, and get the same benefits that you get from eating the fruit or drinking the juice!! Enjoy!!!

The Passion of Christ
Reviewed By: Christine C Murray (Kent, WA)
I really love my Passion Flowers, they are still blooming here in November! They always get a lot of attention from visitors to my garden and I enjoy sharing just how they got their name; "Passion" does not refer to love, but to the Christian theological icon of the passion of Christ on the cross. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Spanish Christian missionaries discovered this flower and adopted its unique physical structures as symbols of Crucifixion. For example: the radial filaments which can number more than a hundred and vary from flower to flower represent the Crown of Thorns. The ten petals and sepals represent the ten faithful apostles. The top 3 stigmata represent the 3 nails and the lower 5 anthers represent the 5 wounds. The flower has been given names related to this symbolism throughout Europe since that time. In Spain, it is known as Espina de Cristo (Christ's Thorn). In Germany it was once known as Muttergottes-Schuzchen (Mother-of-God's Star). In Israel they are referred to as clock-flower. In Japan, they are known as clock plant . In North America they are also called the Maypop, the water lemon, and the wild apricot (after its fruit). Native Americans in the Tennessee area called it ocoee, and the Ocoee River and valley are named after it.
