Passion Vine

Zone 6 | Boffy added on September 3, 2012 | Answered

We found a lot of passion vines growing on our farm in a field. Can I dig these up and transplant them around our pergola? And also I noticed green round and oblong items growing on them. Can you eat these? Thank you, Boffy

These wild forms of passion flower are also known as maypop. If they are growing somewhere in which you have permission to dig up some, then you can grow them along your pergola. Just ensure that the growing conditions mimic those in which you found the vine. As for the maypop fruit, it is edible but may not be that tasty.
