Maypop Fruit…

Leave a comment

From the same vine as in the previous post. About the size of a hen egg, the flesh is sweet and can be used in jams and jellies. The seeds are inedible. It has also been used as an herbal remedy for anxiety and insomnia. This one is not fully ripe.


Maypop flower (Passiflora incarnata)…


Also known as Purple passionflower, True passionflower, Wild apricot, and Wild passion vine.  The Cherokee in Tennessee called it Ocoee, It’s the Tennessee state flower. This one’s kind of scraggly.
