Wild Edible Passionfruit

This is wild Passionfruit. it contains a form of cyanide (cyanogenic glycoside) that is highest when unripe, but is at acceptable levels when ripe.

Passionfruit is 20% carbohydrate, a mere 2% protein (need to eat the seeds to get the amino acids), and it's very low in fat.

100 grams of passionfruit does have around 90 calories, so that's very helpful.

The fruit has respectable amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, and Iron.
