Use Tips

Cut the fruit into two halves. From here, scoop out the jelly-like pulp with a tablespoon. Now it is ready to be consumed, cooked or converted into juice. The skin is not eaten. Granadilla is commonly eaten by itself. However it makes a wonderful jelly, pie filling or cake frosting. Seeds with the surrounding juice sacs are also often added to fruit salads. Granadilla is orange and firm when it is ripe. Ripe granadilla can be refrigerated for a few days.
