A red and blue passion flower in full bloom in Hawaii proudly presents itself on the vine calling out to would be pollinators to come by for a taste. The passion flower has a unique structure that catches your eye and reminds us of brilliant fireworks.
This vine will eventually produce the powerfully strong tasting passionfruit. The passionfruit is used in drinks, pies, and jams, usually tapered with good amounts of sugar. Although not originally from Hawaii, passionfruit plants now line the highways and hillsides on most of the islands. Once ripe, uncultivated plants drop their fruit to the roadside, creating an pungent aroma for anyone within a ten yard radius.
