    "Passion Fruit" 似乎應該翻譯為【殉教者水果】。

    如果翻譯為【殉教者水果】的話,下面抄來的資料說它的名稱 (Passion) 跟宗教有點關係。

    你英文那麼棒,應該不用我翻譯下面抄來的資料:

    抄自 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passion_fruit

    The passion fruit has had a religious association as reflected by the name "passion" given to it by Catholic missionaries who thought that certain parts of the fruit bore some religious connections.[citation needed] These missionaries (who were joined by the Spanish Conquistadors in South America), saw a way of illustrating the Crucifixion:

    The three stigmas were to reflect the three nails in Jesus's hands and feet.The threads of the passion flower were believed to be a symbol of the crown of thorns.The vine's tendrils were likened to the whips.The five anthers represented the five wounds.The ten petals and sepals regarded to resemble the apostles (excluding Judas and Peter).
