I had a lady come into my office today and ask if she could pick one of my passion flowers. Well I had no idea what she was talking about, until she showed me the plant. I always thought it was a weed. She said the fruits are edible, but mine were overipe. She said they were bitter now. Checking on the web tonight also shows you can make teas out of the plants, and the fruits turned yellowish red when ripe.How do I tell if they are any good or not, and which part of the plant do I use for teas ect. What can I use them for? I think mine would be a "passiflora incarnata". I have no idea how many times I have pulled this stuff off my fences in the past.
Can someone tell me more about this particular plant? As you can tell I am still learning about the "weeds" in my area. Help please. Tammy
