Passion Fruit

Also known as the Purple Granadilla. Most product is from the USA and New Zealand. This round fruit is ripe when wrinkled. Unripe fruit has a smooth outer shell and the pulp within (which is the only edible part) is not as liquid, nor as sweet. Ripe fruit is, as noted above, wrinkled: but generally has more liquid inside, and is more fragrant and flavorful. If you wish to use the passion fruits’ shell for serving purposes, then the smoother variety should be requested when ordering. If not, however, we suggest our shipping you the ripest fruit available. The pulp is gelatinous and seedy, yet all is edible. The seeds may be strained-out, and the pulp used in sauces, sorbets, ice creams, and exotic drink and dessert preparations. Approximately 7-10 pieces per pound. Store between 45-50 degrees F, and keep dry. Ripen in a brown bag at room temperature.
