Photo Caption: Passionfruit (Passiflora incarnata) are one of the perennial food plants that can be grown in this area — and they also happen to be native! Come Tuesday to learn more than 30 types of garden foods that only need to be planted once. We didn’t see this one growing on the ground and accidentally POPPED it — so we gave it some rue seed pods for eyes and prepped it for a closeup.
