Orange Passionfruit

When we visited Dunedin Botanic Garden in May and again in June, the orange fruits on our native passionfruit vine were beautifully displayed at the front of the propagation facility. All of my photos were taken 12 June. The second photo, taken by Nigel, may have been taken in May. Dunedin, New Zealand.
