    Passion flower is the exclusive food of the caterpillars of Gulf fritillary butterflies. They’ll appreciate your cultivating this vine

    Actually, my rule of thumb is that I’ll tug gently on the fruit and if it comes off easily, it’s ready. If not, I let it stay on the vine longer.

    Oh, wait until the fruit falls off and then set it in the window until it wrinkles slightly and it’s then ready to eat.
