Notes:

The leaves are similar to maple leaves, but have 3″narrow fingers”. They are a medium green. The leaves are spaced along the the vine individually. Near the end of the vines are large green pods about 3 inches in length. Cut a pod in half and there is white fibrous lining and many milky white, soft, translucent, juicy “seeds” that each have a small black seed inside them. The vines are growing up a bush.

    Passiflora incarnata. Passion Flower. The fruit, when fully ripe, should have a very thin skin and be “falling off ripe” so that just a touch or very, very light tug removes it, or it has literally fallen off. You can eat the pulp around the seeds. Some people like it, some don’t. This is a glorious weed, with gorgeous flowers, but is extremely invasive so plant in your yard at your own risk…
