Passion fruit

Product Description

Passion fruits grow on vines, and are native to South America. There are purple and yellow varieties, and the fruits vary in size from about the size of a plum to the size of a grapefruit. They have a taut shiny skin when freshly picked, and their skin becomes shriveled and wrinkled as they ripen. Their flavor is very astringent and refreshingly tart when the fruit is fresh. Their flavor becomes sweeter and more complex as the fruit ripens.

History

Passion fruits come from a large family of several hundred species. Most of passion fruits are native to the South and Central American tropics, Brazil, Mexico, and the West Indies, but there are species which are native to Australia. It was the Spanish explorers who took passion fruit back to Europe with them from South America and from there the passion fruits spread around the world. Passion fruits were taken to England in the early 1800’s and probably came to Australia at the same time.
