are the fruits edible?

United Kingdom Gb

my plant has produced tons of fruit this year and i was wondering wether the fruits are edible or this type is decorative.

On plant Passiflora caerulea



Yes, the fruits are edible, but definitely an acquired taste. Not exactly what you'd call 'delicious'!

apparently you can eat the fruits but i am told they are insipid when eaten raw...
not sure what that means

I just swallow them and they leave a nice aftertaste, the inside if the red jelly seed is woody and unpleasant so don't chew. You could squash it through a tea strainer but you wouldn't get much for your time. Nice for a garnish on a sweet though...
