ENGLISH
The Blue Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea), also known as the Common Passion Flower, is a vine native to southern Brazil and Argentina (where it is known as the Pasionaria or Mburucuyá in Guaraní). These names may also be applied to Passiflora edulis sometimes known as the passionfruit’.

It is popular with gardeners because of its intricate, scented flowers that have an almost plastic-looking appearance. The unusual shape of the flowers has led to the plant being associated in Christian symbolism with the passion of Jesus; the three stigmas representing the three nails used to nail Jesus to the cross, the ovary and its stalk represent the chalice of the Last Supper, the five anthers represent the five wounds, the corona represents the crown of thorns, the ten ‘petals’ (actually five petals and five sepals) the apostles (save Judas the traitor and Peter the denyer); the old leaves also represent the hands of those who persecuted him, the young leaves the point of the lance used to stab him, and the tendrils the whips of those who beat him.

It is cultivated worldwide. Even though the fruit is edible, it is rather insipid when eaten raw. It can substitute for blackberries. More palatable is the fruit of the Passiflora edulis which is sweet and acidic. A tea can be made of the flower and is said to alleviate stress and anxiety. However, cyanogenic glycoside (breaks down into cyanide) has been found in the leaves. It is possible to boil away most of the cyanide.

CASTELLANO
La Mburucuyá, pasionaria, flor de la pasión, pasionaria azul (Passiflora caerulea), es una especie botánica de trepadora nativa del sur de Sudamérica: Perú, Uruguay, Brasil, Argentina. Su nombre más conocido deriva de la lengua guaraní. Es popular en jardinería debido a sus bellas y aromáticas flores.

La inusual forma de las flores ha sido motivo de asociación con la simbología cristiana de la Pasión de Jesús: sus tres estigmas florales representan los tres clavos usados para clavar a Jesús en la cruz; el ovario y su base representa el cáliz de la Última Cena; las cinco anteras representan las cinco heridas; la corola representa la Santa corona, los diez ‘pétalos’ (en realidad son cinco pétalos y el resto son sépalos) los apóstoles (salvo Judas Iscariote el traidor y Pedro el negador); las viejas hojas también representan las manos de aquellos que lo persiguieron, y las hojas nuevas, la punta de la lanza usada para punzarlo; y, los zarcillos los látigos con los que lo azotaron.

Mundialmente cultivada. Aunque el fruto es comestible, es algo insípido al consumirse crudo. Un té se hace de la flor y se dice que alivia estres y ansiedad. Crecen mejor en suelo rico, bien drenado, a pleno sol, y con provisión de soporte. Regularmente regarla en verano. Trepa por medio de sus zarcillos simples, llegando a formar masas enmarañadas. De crecimiento muy rápido.
