    Anyone have any ideas what this is? Its a radiant shade of orange and came off a vine in northern uk near liverpool. The fruit have squidgy red seeds inside and doesn't really smell of anything. Thats the leaf from the vine next to the fruit. The shell is a bit like an tangerine, slightly airy and coated in a pith. the body was pretty hollow with more pith surrounding the seeds. Thanks sorry for the rubbish quality photo i don't have a decent camera...

    Looks like maybe a Passiflora.

    Hi tg55... I'm pretty sure you are the proud owner of a Passiflora caerulea if I'm not mistaking! Nice!
    I have many growing, yet to flower. Can't wait... Soon
