Description:

A large fast growing passionflower from the rainforests of Venezuela, which can nowadays be found from Mexico to Ecuador. This species has even been grown by the Maya’s for their 5 cm large, orange-yellow edible fruits. The plants can still be found on old Maya temples. These days it is still being grown as a food crop for local markets. The flowers are pink with purple-white filaments and can grow to around 10-13 cm in diameter. It is a tropical passionflower which, due to its seize can be a great plant for a greenhouse or an atrium, however with some regular pruning it can be a great houseplant as well.
