|The plant looks to be around +8ft in height, and has quite a few firm plum looking fruit growing from it. There are spirally vines growing and spreading onto neighboring plants and trees.
I am currently living in Caribbean climate. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

|Yes, Passion Fruit. Yummm!!! Make sure you know how to tell they are ripe. You don't want to eat a green passion fruit. You don't want to eat more than one or two when they're ripe.
Edited to add: we always waited until they fell off on their own.

But many would say It is technically edible but that only Passiflora edulis is worth eating. The fruit of edulis will be very dark purplish-black when ripe (vs. orange).
Here, even the starving chickens down the lane don't eat the fruit ... clearly some bird or other critter does because it pops up all over the place in spots that you'd think were pretty inhospitable.
That and fig trees. Oh, and bay laurel. Complain, complain, complain.
I find myself most amusing.
