Another curiosity concerning the plant is linked to its name. It seems that the term Passiflora derives from the Latin Passio (Passion) and Flos (flower). Discovered for the first time by the Jesuits in 1610, the Passiflora Edulis was so called because of the particular shape of its flowers, which remind the pistils of the nails of the passion of Jesus, and the crown of thorns in the rays. The tendrils also seem to evoke the whip of the scourging.
