The invasive, sunlight blocking, and previously thought by me to be a fruitless wonder of a passionflower vine that my neighbours have inflicted on the fence and my tiny garden, turns out to be Passiflora caerulea. I was going to write to next door's landlord and ask them to replace it with something less invasive (I pull shoots out of my garden every weekend) but now that it's possibly supplying food, I might hold off. Paghat says they can be made into a nice-ish relish but doesn't give any recipes. Anyone ever done that with this fruit? I'm having a bit of a mammal 'bright red equals poison' moment and not sure if I want to try it.
