Passiflora vitifolia is a species of Passiflora, native to southern Central America [Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama] and northwestern South America [Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru]. It is a vine with cylindric stems covered in red-brown hairs when young. The leaves are serrate, three-lobed, up to 15 cm long and 18 cm broad. The lobed leaves’ resemblance to grape leaves gives this passionflower its specific epithet, “vitifolia,” meaning “grape leaves” after the Latin for grape “vitis.”
The flowers are bright red, up to 9 cm diameter. The fruit is quite sour still when it falls off the plant and can take a month to ripen to its full flavor of sour strawberries.
