Passion fruit (Passiflora edulis)

Photo of a passion fruit flower

Basics: You might have tasted passion fruit before, but did you know that this plant also produces beautiful flowers? Passion fruits are indigenous to South America and are widely grown in the Amazon rainforest and other tropical regions. This photo was taken at a school in Acre where we are now teaching children about the importance of the rainforest.

Interesting fact: Passion fruits are sometimes used to treat anxiety because they have a calming effect.
