What Is Passion Fruit?
This tropical fruit is actually considered a type of berry, according to botanists. It is the fruit of the Passiflora vine, a type of passion flower.

It has a tough outer rind and juicy, seed-filled center.

There are several types, which can vary in size and color. The most commonly available are the purple and yellow varieties.

These are:
  • Passiflora edulis: Small round or oval-shaped fruits with purple skin.
  • Passiflora flavicarpa: Usually slightly larger than the purple variety, these are round or oval-shaped with yellow skin.

This is what passion fruit looks like: Although they are a tropical fruit, some varieties can survive in a sub-tropical climate.

Because of this, they are grown all over the world and crops can be found in South and North America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
