Passiflora edulis - passionfruit

The nearly round fruit, 1-1/2 to 3 inches wide, has a tough rind that is smooth and waxy and ranging in hue from dark purple with faint, fine white specks, to light yellow or pumpkin-color. Within is a cavity more or less filled with an aromatic mass of double walled, membranous sacs containing orange-colored, pulpy juice and as many as 250 small, hard, dark brown or black, pitted seeds. The unique flavor is appealing, musky, guava-like and sweet/tart to tart. The yellow form has generally larger fruit than the purple, but the pulp of the purple is less acid, richer in aroma and flavor, and has a higher proportion of juice (35-38%). Some of the fruit may have sunburn and mildew, but the juice is not affected.

Occasionally mildew may appear on the skin; this can be washed off and the fruit is not damaged. Also, the highest sugar content exists when the fruit is wrinkled; the best time to eat. Unusual but we have fruit now september.

We ship 3 and 4.5 includes free shipping. Quantity: for example a 3lb box will hold approx 25 fruit. a 4.5lb box about 45-50 fruit. April 2019.
