Passiflora edulis, also known as Passion Fruit or Passionflower, is an intricate and beautiful flowering vine native to the Americas. Native variants of passionflower can be found throughout North and South America, but it is cultivated around the world in tropical and subtropic areas for it's unique and highly prized edible fruit, foliage, and flora. The fruit is often made into delicious juice or eaten raw. This plant has several medical properties which make it a great addition to any herbalists garden.

Some of the purported medicinal uses of passionflower and it's various species include for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and mood regulation. This is due to the fact that the plant is a mild MAOI (mono-amine oxidase inhibitor). This is perhaps it's most common and well researched use.
