Passion fruit is a tropical fruit that is known for its unique flavor and aroma. It is the fruit of the passionflower plant, which is native to South America, but it is now grown in many other regions of the world, including Africa, Australia, and Asia.
Passion fruit is oval-shaped and typically about the size of a small apple. It has a thick, hard rind that is either dark purple or yellow in color, depending on the variety. Passion fruit is also a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. It is low in calories and can be a healthy addition to a well-balanced diet. Inside the rind, there is a juicy, pulpy interior that is filled with small, edible seeds. The pulp is typically sweet tart in flavor and has a distinctive tropical taste that is often used in desserts, drinks, and sauces.
It is often used in smoothies, cocktails, and other beverages, as well as in desserts like pies, tarts, and sorbets. Some people also enjoy eating the fruit fresh, by scooping out the pulp and seeds with a spoon.
