Cassabanana (Sicana odorifera)

I think I'm in trouble.
I bought some Cassabanana seeds from the most reputable EBay and got this, (Pictured pink Passiflora type flower).
Going through the forum, I found a pic posted by Mike,(cucumber looking dark coloured fruit).
My Cassabanana flowers don't look anything like Mike's pic, I can see in Mike's pic what looks like a typical yellow Cucurbitacaea flower, which I think Cassabanana belong. Can anyone ident this flower, other than looking suspiciously like some type of wild Passiflora?

hi john
cassabannana have male and female
yellow flowers on the same plant.
i have seen a lot of passiflora flowers
in the past while i was searching for
p.antiquinensis and what you have is
definately some sort of passiflora.

That's great, just found out I've been sold a wild passionfruit, P. foetida, by that wonderful EBay crowd.. Thought I was doing so well til it flowered. Now it all has to come out and start again next year if I can find some genuine Cassabanana seeds.
