|PASSIFLORA FOETIDA - Love-in-a-mist, Wild Water Lemon |
This vigorous delicate vine from Brazil has a tendency to overgrow. Its name derives from the fine net of green enclosing the flowers. It flowers heavily and fruits without hand pollination. The fruits are kumquat sized with a thin, scarlet red shell surrounding a blush-white pulp, mildly sweet, delicately flavored. The leaves have a strong scent when touched. Propagated by seed or cutting.
