    Stinky Passionfruit?

    Thought I'd double check that this is indeed stinky Passionfruit and that it is edible before I tuck in.


    Cheers

    The leaves certainly look like passion fruit.

    Cheers fellas. I tried it yesterday and I'm still alive! It was much the same as the shop variety but maybe a little less sweet.

    Yes I eat those little ones , Have found them all along the east coast of Queensland.

    Here is a vine in the bush I have been wanting to get identified if anyone knows whether its passionfruit it would be much appreciated.

    It looks the same to me , the fruit is descent passionfruit size , except I haven't seen them turn purple etc. yet , last time I found this vine the bats got them before I could see one past this green anyway.

    When cut open they're white inside with the seeds like an immature passionfruit.

    Last time I found the vine last season, I smelled it inside and it smelled like it , want to make sure .

    If anyone knows , or if there's a similar wild or imitation growing in nth qld . and could identify this would be good .
    Thanks .

    I cant make out from your photos but be careful its not Passiflora subpeltata = White passion Flower which can be toxic.
