I am a city boy, now living in the country (think Eddy Albert); soon I will be adding some cattle, and this vine with ‘egg sized’ pods or fruit, or whatever they are is growing along the fence between my pasture and the neighbor farm. What would you recommend that I should do with it, if anything. Thank you.

    I have seen it growing around animals for over 60 years. It is the sole host plant for Fritillary butterflies. Primarily the Gulf Fritillary.

    Looks like Passiflora incarnata, Maypop. The leaves, flowers, and fruit husks can be harmful in large quantities. Grazing animals may try to eat large quantities of the plant. Best to remove it. Aloha, Dave
