Passion Flowers Fruits
Silver Surfer Posts: 39
I've had some lovely flowers on my Passion Flower this year, and for the first time I now have fruits, which are green. Are these edible as they are or do they have to turn dark, as I've seen Passion Fruit in the Supermarket which are a deep plummy colour? If so, will I leave them to ripen on he plant or take them off and put them ? where ? to ripen? Thanks.
P. edulis is the one in the SMs. What's yours? I think most of them are only edible in the sense that they're not poisonous

They'll turn orange, and, I'm afraid, although edible, nothing like the wonderful flavour of the ones you get in the shops. That's passiflora edulis, your's will be p. caerulea.
Thank you for your replies nutcutlet, H-C & phillippa. Mine must be the p caerulea as that's the name of the plant.
As I don't have a G/H or Polytunnel I wont be growing the P edulis, but I will now buy them in the S.M. and admire mine while on the plant. Thank you all.
