Image of Passion Fruit

Scientific Binomial Name: Passiflora edulis


Eaten out of hand, desserts, juice, ice cream, syrup, garnish, with yogurt, soft drink flavoring


Good-quality Passion fruit has very old-looking skin. The underlying shell remains hard, but the skin will be brown, shriveled and may even have spots of mold on it. This will not hurt the quality of the product.


Avoid product that is soft. Mold is okay - it can be wiped off.


Ripen Tropical fruit at room temperature and then refrigerate until ready for use.


Passion fruit will not ripen well after picking - it should be allowed to ripen on the tree.
