Passiflora alata is a vine or creeper, native to Brazil and widely grown as an ornamental in warm temperate climates. It is best grown in full sun to semi-shade, although it can tolerate light shade in warmer climates. The plant requires regular watering and well-drained soil for best results. The plant will flower and bear fruit better when planted in warm temperatures.

The flowers of Passiflora alata are exceptionally beautiful, with their bright red, crimson and vinous petals, white and purple filaments, and highly fragrant scent. It is not surprising that these flowers attract a lot of butterflies and hummingbirds. The beautiful blooms are soon followed by oval-shaped, yellow to bright orange fruits that are up to 4″ long. The flesh of the fruit is light orange, slightly acidic and very tasty. Passiflora alata fruits are edible and have several health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation.

It is possible to grow Passiflora alata in cooler climates, provided that the plant is protected over winter and is planted in a pot. For pot-grown plant, mulch will be beneficial to keep the soil warm. In pots, the plant may produce fewer fruits than when planted in a warm and sunny spot. However, when it fruits, each plant can yield an abundant harvest of up to 50 fruits per season. The fruits are rich in Vitamins A, B and C and can be consumed fresh or used to make jams or jellies.
