According to Wikipedia, Passiflora edulis is a vine species of passion flower that is native to Paraguary, Brazil, and northern Argentina. It is widely grown in many parts of the world and often commercially cultivated for its fruit.

In South Africa, passionfruit (or “granadilla” as it’s often known), is used to flavor yogurt and soft drinks, as a topping for cakes and desserts, and also eaten raw as a fruit.
