RE: Foetida

Hi Mika
There are many different foetidas. Generally the fruit are edible and indeed very tasty but I would strongly advise that you do not try to do anything with the leaves. Many Passiflora are cyanogenic so stick with commercially available P. incarnata.

Here is a link that might be useful: Passiflora toxicology

RE: Foetida

Thank you for the link.It was helpful.I ordered my foetidas from Georgiavines online and the info said that it was found in the galopagas(can't spell).I would love to start a collection of different species of passiflora.I guess my next one will be incarnata.thank you.
