Bursting with flavours on every drop, passion fruit is sweet, succulent, and packed full of fragrant. Our purple variety which is mainly cultivated in Thailand is the King of all cultivars. The pulp is sweeter than acidic, and richer in aroma. Inside, the fruit consists of little membranous sacs that hold the yummy juice together with edible crunchy seeds. Passion fruit is an excellent source of Vitamin C, the anti-oxidant beta-carotene, and dietary fibre which helps reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. 100g of the fruit offers nearly 50% of the daily requirement intake. Believe it or not, passion fruits with wrinkled skin are actually tastier and richer in sugar than their non-wrinkle counterpart. Passion fruit can be enjoyed fresh over a pot of yoghurt or as part of cheesecake. Just scoop out its juicy pulp using a spoon. For all its flavours and goodness, Passion fruit is THE super fruit to go for!
