Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral QCHammy On Oct 1, 2008, QCHammy from San Tan Valley, AZ (Zone 9a) wrote:

Also is known as the Garlic Passion Fruit because the fruit, while sweet, has strong garlic overtones. It is eaten in it's native areas of Brazil but personally I cannot imagine eating a fruit that tastes like garlic.
