Originated in the southern region of Brazil, Passion fruit is grown from the flower ‘Passiflora’. The pretty and full of life flower comes from a delicate climbing vine. Botanically, passion fruit is a berry because of its fleshy interior. The round mature fruit is dark purple in colour, sometimes with a shade of yellow. As soon as the thick rind of the fruit starts getting a wrinkled texture, feel free to eat it and enjoy the ripeness through an exotic taste.
Eating the fruit is an experience full of deliciousness. Take your time to savour every bit of it!
As soon as you cut a piece of this perfect fruit, the juicy pulp spreads out its refreshing fragrance and fills the room. From the first bite itself, the perfect blend of sour and sweet takes our taste buds on a journey of exciting flavours. The fiber rich seeds of the passion fruit can be swallowed or chewed, and sometimes eaten along with the pulp.
Being a tropical fruit, they are mostly available in summers, but can be found in winters too. From tangy juices to creamy desserts, passion fruit can be eaten in many ways! Below are a few quick recipes that you should save and try soon.
