    I believe only edulis is edible. Grows easy enough for me and can even take light freezes. But give it something to climb cause it'll go everywhere.

    I know they are a weed here. I've made tea from the leaves before. Not tasty. The fruit wasn't tasty, either.

    Ahhh!! Passionflowers! Quite a few are edible but P. edulis is the usually the commercially grown variety.

    P. incarnata is the only US native plant and the fruit is good. Mine is coming up now.

    I have quite a few passiflora including P. foetida, the one that's listed as possibly carnivorous. Very aptly named.

    I love passionflowers.
