Passionfruit
The passionfruit is a native of southern Brazil. It is an egg-shaped tropical fruit with a brittle, wrinkled purple-brown rind encasing flesh-covered edible seeds. The orange pulp has an intense aromatic flavour, while the texture is jelly-like and watery. In Australia they grow prolifically in gardens and in the wild. They grow on a vine, bearing fruit through summer into early autumn. Passionfruit do not ripen after picking.

Select passionfruit with slightly wrinkled purple skins. Overly wrinkled skins indicate they may be old and fermented.

Passionfruit may be frozen whole, or stored at room temperature for about a week. They will also keep in the fridge for several weeks.
