Passion flower is a tropical vine that occurs naturally throughout Europe, Asia and southeastern portions of the Americas. It earned the name “passion” because of a resemblance between the flower’s corona and the crown of thorns worn by Jesus during the crucifixion, although the plant is also known as Maypop and Wild Water Lemon.

Powdered passion flower is used to produce teas, tinctures, infusions and liquid extracts.

Passion flower, also called Maypop, Apricot Vine and Passion Vine, is one of several hundred members of the Passifloraceae family of tropical plants and vines. While most are evergreen, this species is notable as one of the only deciduous varieties that can survive a winter frost.

The plant produces a lemon-sized fruit called a maypop that reportedly tastes like guava fruit. It is this fruit that lends Hawaiian Punch® its unique tangy flavor.

The flowers, leaves and stems are harvested to make various hair and skin care products, as well as teas and tonics. The powdered herb is also commonly encapsulated as a dietary supplement. Among the phytochemicals found in passion flower are harmine, harmaline, and harmalol, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) collectively referred to as the harmala alkaloids.
