Hi all, i found this passiflora, hope someone can ID it. The fruits change from green to deep maroon as they age.

here are some pics.

Siam you are so lucky to be able to take a walk and find new passies. I have no idea what it is but it looks like another type of decaloba. It seems like a lot of them have those spots to mimic eggs.

did you see its flower? Could it be a p. biflora? The flowers are in pairs ;)

Hi Siam,

P. biflora does have flowers in pairs, as this also has fruits in pairs in some places, so I can see the assumption. However, the fruits are not quite the right shape in my opinion. Granted, biflora is quite variable, but I think this could be something different.

Perhaps bogotensis? That would be great...

Sorry I cannot be more help. Good luck!

I agree with Eric about the shape of the fruit being different then P. biflora. I have P. bogotensis but haven't seen any flowers, much less fruit on it yet.

I don't think it is P. bogotensis. Mine is loaded with fruit right now and it looks different. I'll try to get a photo in the next couple of days.

Hi Folks
Def not P. bogotensis. Flower pics are always useful and a ruler against the fruit would help too. The fruit look quite distinct but I don't know what the plant is.

Here is a link that might be useful: Passiflora bogotensis
