Jelly Bean or Passion Fruit ?

The other day, I have found a funny-shaped orchid - Dendrobium smilliae - in the botanical garden. Well, this orchid was "found" in 19th century, so it is not "new" spices but the shape of the flower is very unique compared to other orchids.
For me, the seeds resembles like the inside of a tropical fruit so I named it "Passion Fruit Orchid".

However later, I found that it is called "Jelly Bean Orchid" by village children.

I have looked at pictures but I still support my idea of "Passion Fruit Orchid"......
What do you think ??
