Not 100% sure of the exact species... but I am led to believe it is Passiflora alata.

Thanks.

Is the fruit eatable?  does it needs winter protection in your zone?

I've fruited Ruby Glow in the past -- it's easier to fruit than P. alata, and is usually called Passiflora phoenicea because it's slightly different than P. alata.  It does require a cross pollinator (I usually used P. alata, but P. edulis can work too).

Very delicious. I would say typical passion fruit flavor
It's the yellow larger fruit on the left in the photo... next to the purple "Frederick" fruit.
It is not hardy in my area. I am growing the mother plant in my winter heated greenhouse.
It grows fine in a 5 gallon pot and will bloom and fruit as well.
I hand pollinated it with Frederick and Incarnata pollen.
Can't say which worked best though.

Incarnata:

I have Frederick and Ruby...and ruby has never fruited. Ruby does give off a lot of flowers though. It must be pollinating with something else you have.

I hand pollinated with Frederick and Incarnata to set fruit.
