Ripens to a tough, bumpy, round or oval-shaped fruit. In shades of gorgeous red and dark purple, passion fruit delivers a complex but luscious taste peaking interest in a wide-range of consumers from the health-conscious to the curious.

Two things your customer should know about passion fruit

  1.  Ripe when wrinkled – Yes, that shriveled-up fruit is ready to eat. Ripen on your kitchen counter: the aroma is like an exotic perfume.
  2. Slice, don’t bite – Just like a lime, cut it open and squeeze the outer shell for the juice. For a great crunch, try adding the juice, pulp and seeds to a dish.
