Ripe Passionfruit

Four fruits grew on this vine, then fell down. The one in Gretchen’s hand we found caught half way down. It seemed to be ripe, so we tested it.

Something ate this other fruit and left only shards on the ground.

The others were probably carried off by woodland creatures with hands, most likely raccoons.

Back to the first fruit, here it is cut and smelling very ripe:

    They are very good when you can find them. I make tea from the leaves of the ones growing near where I live. It helps me sleep better.
