Passion fruit is the fruit of the passion flower vine that is native to South America. It is commonly cultivated in tropical and subtropical climates for its flavorful and aromatic fruit. Passion fruit has an edible seedy interior with fragrant pulp that is citrusy, floral, and sweet-tart in taste. Passion fruit will have a smooth exterior when first picked that will wrinkle as it ripens. A fully ripe passion fruit should be uniformly wrinkled on the surface.
Uses: Cut passion fruit in half and scoop out the seeds for use in drinks, desserts, and recipes. Passion fruit pairs exceptionally well with sugar.
