Welcome to my blog

Hello #hive friends.
Greetings to the #Hivegarden community. Happy #day.
Today I am very happy to make this publication, which refers to a plant that gives an exquisite fruit such as parchita or passion fruit as we call it here in Venezuela or passion fruit.
This plant has been planted in the ground for 02 years, it has given two harvests, the first one was very little. The second harvest has been abundant because it received a lot of water due to the long rainy season. For a plant to bear fruit, it is a great effort of the sower who takes care of it, spraying it with organic products and fertilizing it with triple 15 each quarterly until the desired fruit is obtained. Without further ado, here is the process of planting, harvesting and consumption of parchita.
It is planted in the ground when the plant is more than 1 meter high in a fertilized hole to withstand the trauma it receives when transplanted.
When the plant is well treated, cared for, fertilized, it gives a flower that lasts a few hours and produces an exquisite scent or peculiar aroma that attracts hummingbirds, cicadas, butterflies and canary canary birds.
This fruit has been called by the Spanish as the passion fruit or pasionaria due to a thorough theological study of the morphology of its flower.
- Relation with the passion of Christ.
- It has 5 petals, as it is pentaradial, it is related to 10 apostles.
- The 03 pistils relate it to the three nails of the cross where Christ dies and the shape of the crown of thorns.
- The purple color is the one used in the days of Lent.
After the plant blooms (opens its flower) the next day it shrinks again and then the fruit begins to form.
Here you can see a spherical fruit, green in color because it lacks maturity.
At the end of December and now in January, the already yellowish patches have been harvested, indicating their maturity.
After picking up the parchitas, I prepared a delicious juice to taste their sweet and sour flavor.
Since we are on a diet, I proceeded to prepare a tizana using banana, milk cap, pineapple, tangerine and the juice of passion fruit or parchita.
Consuming this fruit brings its benefits: - Rich in vitamin C and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. - Provides fiber to the body. - It is low in calories. - It has a high percentage of water.
This fruit is of tropical origin from America, and can be used in juices, desserts, ice creams, in sauces for salads and meats.
The scientific name is: Passiflora edulis and it is a climbing plant and its fruit has tiny seeds in excess.
This is my participation in the #SelfieChallenge👇 initiative.
Well my friends, have a nice day!

Passion fruits are really good.
I have one potted plant at home. It needs some more attention though.

Yes it is a very resistant plant, but you still have to take care of them. Thanks for stopping by. Happy monday.
I miss eating this fruit!It's called mirinda here in my place or the passion fruit!This is very nutritious and healthy. I used to grow one at home but unfortunately it was accidentally pulled out from its roots by my father that caused it to die. huhu!
Try again to sow its seed, when you eat one, don't waste time. Every day we should germinate and sow a plant. It is good to clean the environment. Thanks for stopping by. Greetings.
Yeah, you're right!I actually sow seeds already in order to replace the lost one!Thanks for the encouragement. GOD BLESS!
This is my favorite fruit . In my home also having passion fruit 😍😍
Thank God!, the passion fruit is a very kind plant when it bears fruit, and you only have to take care of it a little.
