Passion Fruit

Passion fruit (Passiflora edulis, of the family Passiflora-ceae) is native to Brazil and is grown in all tropical areas around the world. A number of species are grown for their edible fruit: purple granadilla (P. edulis), yellow granadilla (P. laurifolia), sweet granadilla (P. ligularis), sweet calabash (P. maliformis), curaba (P. mollissima), and giant granadilla (P. quadrangularis). The round berry, grown on a woody vine, is about 2 in. in diameter and contains a juicy pulp with many seeds. Single-strength or concentrated juice, frozen or canned, is the major processed product. The flavor is very susceptible to damage by heat; therefore, the frozen product is preferred over the canned product, but recent advances in aseptic packaging have produced superior products. Passion fruit juice is very popular for blending with other juices. The fruit is also used in fruit salads, jams, jellies, and confections.
