Passion fruit grows in tropical regions and comes in yellow or purple versions. Both have the seedy pulp that looks slightly slimy.
If you have a particular sweet tooth, you can always add some sugar syrup but always taste the fruit first. Freshly made pineapple juice can naturally be sweet. We often choose to make freshly prepared juice, but it is worth noting that juice from the store is often equally sweet.
Many people don’t know how to eat passion fruit other than just scooping it out of the ‘shell’. It is a fruit that is underappreciated in recipes mainly because of the special tangy and slight floral flavours.
