PASSION FRUIT

Passion fruit tastes like a super sweet, somewhat tart cousin of citrus.

RIPE? You will know it is time to harvest when fruits are plump, have a slight give, and are fully colored. In the yellow forms, the color is deeply golden and the purple fruits will be nearly black.
  • Slightly wrinkled fruits are super ripe and will have a sweeter taste than the smooth skinned passion fruit.
  • To eat a passion fruit raw, cut it in half and use a spoon to remove the pulp from the rind.
  • The rind is not edible.
  • People can eat both the seeds and the pulp, or just the pulp.
  • One fruit (18 grams) contains just 17 calories and is a rich source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, iron, and potassium ( 1 ).
  • For weight loss, passion fruit is best consumed whole. It can be eaten alone, used as a topping or filling for desserts, or added to drinks.
