Beautiful!! I was always turned off by passiflora (maypop) because they grow wild here. We used to have maypop battles. When the fruit gets ripe and before it falls off, pick them off and throw them at each other. If they are at the right stage of ripeness, they will SPLAT!! the other person!! But this is just beautiful. Hmm....maybe I need to reconsider.
