Passiflora edulis f. edulis
A large, vigorous vine, originally native to Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil but widely cultivated worldwide for its flavorful, small purple fruit that is mostly used in juices. It is a very easy plant in cultivation and will do well in warm temperate and tropical climates in USDA Zones 9 and above. In Zone 8 it will freeze back in most winters but can be considered root hardy.
