Cool. How did it taste? I'm not up on Passion fruit. Aren't some bred for flowers and others for eating? Or did I get that wrong?

I think you're right about that Stan. I think ours is supposed to be one you can eat, but they only fruit in a hot summer. Those fruits were on the vine when we brought it 2 years ago. Think it's starting to form fruit again this year, but not convinced they'll do anything, last weeks heatwave seems to have gone away again.

Have you tried to eat one?..

We did the first year but I don't think it had much flesh. I don't remember what it tasted like though.
