Also post it on the Passiflora Forum. They're real aficionados there.

There are so many passion species and many interspecific hybrids, only a few have really tasty fruit, but I'm not aware of any that are toxic. Passiflora edulis is the common edible one, but is pretty much tropical or subtropical. P. incarnata, P. incense, P. caerulea, are more cold hardy. With most passifloras, pollination is complicated, and some will only produce edible fruit when cross-pollinated by some particular species. I'm sure you can find some type of passion fruit to grow where you are.
