    Passiflora edulis
    fruit de la passion, grenadelle, grenadine, passion fruit, passionflower, purple granadilla, purple passion fruit

    P. foetida can be distinguished by its hairy foliage, alternate, 3-lobed leaves, densely coiled, axillary tendrils, showy white to lavender flowers with an all white to white and purple corona, and red to orange globose fruits surrounded by the pinnately branching bracts. The naturalized edible passionfruit, Passiflora edulis Sims, is mostly glabrous, has large, edible, yellow fruits, and lacks the pinnately branching flower bracts.
