Hi my wife's sister bought a plant in Atlanta and gave it to my wife saying, they sell the fruit for $3 each.
I don't want to mislead, but the sister called it a lemon vine. I find no such thing.
Please review pictures and tell me what you think.
If you know anything about the fruit please tell.
Thanks

Welcome!

It looks like a passion fruit vine

I think so too. Is there a type of passion fruit that is edible?

I looked over several pictures and for a while I thought it was passion fruit, then I changed my mind.
What changed my mind was I saw several Passion Fruit pictures and the depth of the cut between
lobes was very deep compared to my pictures. However I just did another search and found several
passion fruit pictures that do look like mine.
You may be right, any other characteriastics I could look for.
I guess I'll know in 3 or 4 months :-)
Thanks

Liliqoi, (Passiflora edulis) is wonderful! There may be other edible passion fruits.

I just found Passiflora laurifolia, common name water lemon.

I thought they all were edible... Plus... The leaves are supposed to be medicinal... And... All those cool caterpillars....
In Florida the long wing zebra... Around here, several kinds of fritillary.

Re the lobes?
Several different kinds of passiflora, different leaves on each type.

The common "May Pops" are a bit dry. Even the cows don't seem to find them tasty.

Did you wait long enough?
May pops turn yellow, and get wrinkly.
Bout like eating a pomegranate.

I thought all Passionfruit had to get wrinkly before it was ripe. Smiling
