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.

The tag on this Passiflora reads "Has extraordinarily beautiful flowers (brilliant purple flower reflexed sepals and petals, long androgynophore) that hang on 8 inch peduncles that bend upward to display. Pollinated by hummingbirds and bees. Needs 2-3 hours of sun, rich fertile soil and not dry."
