    The fruit has red flesh, which actually tastes how it looks. A mix of meaty and berry like flavor, sweet-ish with texture like that of the common passion fruit, if albeit more viscous.
  • Posted by Joy (Kalama, Wa. - Zone 8b) on Aug 2, 2013 3:16 PM concerning plant:
    In a mild winter, which has been common here of late, Passiflora caerulea is evergreen. It will die to the ground in a cold winter and is late to come up in the spring. Can be invasive. Will send up new shoots at a fair distance from the original plant.
