- Note: Ethan Nielsen (2009-03-19) - There's no reason these wouldn't be edible; as for desirability, try them and tell us!
- Note: sandra prais (2009-03-21) - I am hoping to get an answer from someone who has eaten them and survived! (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note: Maren Purves (2009-03-24) - I'm not one who has, but I would wait until they drop rather than get them off the plant. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Note: David Costen (2009-03-24) - The parents are recorded as including Manicata Mixta & Mollisima. The text books say that the fruit of all three are edible. (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note: s (2009-03-24) - I have now had informatglow' is not self fertile and it has been wrongly identified.Kartuz nursery suggests that it could be Passiflora exoniensis which has edible fruits. Any further ion that P'Coral comments will be welcome
- Note: sandra prais (2009-03-24) - the above got distorted in transit.The last sentance should read ' Any further comments will be welcome'
- Note: David Costen (2009-03-24) - Well, try contacting Patrick Worley who created this hybrid in the first place. If you had searched on 'Coral Glow' in the discussion forum archives this would have been obvious. Furthermore, P.manicata is the most widely occuring/cultivated tacsonia in the whole Andes. I don't know this personally I just do "research". Google is amazing!
By the way CIAT stands for Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical which in Spanish would be CIAT. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
