- The Passion Fruit’s thick purple skin wrinkles when ripe. Inside, it has small, black edible seeds surrounded by an aromatic, jelly-like pulp that has a lemony, sweet-tart flavor.
Quick Usage Ideas
- Traditionally used to make juices, Passion Fruit can be used to top ice cream or in blender drinks, such as Passion Fruit margaritas. Or simply cut in half and enjoy the pulp with a spoon.
- Passion Fruit seeds are a great source of fiber. The pulp also contains vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium.
Selection & Storage
- Allow fruit to ripen at room temperature until the skin is wrinkly and aromatic. Refrigerate ripe fruit and use within 3 days.
