ORIGIN

Passion fruit originally comes from Brazil, but now grows in all countries with a tropical climate in Africa, Asia and South America. Our passion fruit comes mainly from Colombia, but also from South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand and Zimbabwe. 

TASTE

What sets the passion fruit apart is its unique blend of sweetness and acidity. The pulp is juicy, generously packed with seeds. Don’t discard those seeds; they’re a tasty treat in themselves. The passion fruit is known for its strong tropical and distinct aroma. Close your eyes and it feels like you are in an exotic land! 

USE AND PREPARATION

The pulp of the passion fruit tastes delicious and is mainly used in juices and desserts, and it can also be a delightful addition to yogurt or enjoyed straight from the skin. The beauty of it lies in its simplicity – just halve the fruit, grab a spoon, and enjoy! 

STORAGE ADVICE

Allow the passion fruit to ripen at room temperature, then refrigerate it. A wrinkled skin is a sign of perfect ripeness, offering a sweeter taste. This is your cue to dive into the luscious pulp and seeds, which will have taken on a rich, dark orange hue. 

EXOTIC TIPS!

Note! When purchasing passion fruit for later consumption, opt for the ones with smooth skins as they have a longer shelf life. 

Want something different from orange juice? Cut the passion fruit in half, strain or press the pulp through a sieve, and TA-DA, you have homemade passion fruit juice!
