Fruit – Vegetable – Tropical Fruits
Like all of its relatives, the passion-fruit also comes from Central and South America; it prospers best of all in tropical altitudes — plantations are to be found at heights of 1500 m to 2500 m above sea level — and in the subtropics.
The yellow passion-fruit presumably came from the red passion fruit.
Out of the approximately 20 edible passion fruits, the yellow and red passion varieties rank among the most commercially viable. Passion-fruits grow in all tropical and semitropical areas.
All the year round predominantly from Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Colombia.
They may be used sweet dishes, dessert sauces and drinks, as well as spooned out and eaten raw.
Whole mature fruits should be stored for about 1 week in a chilled space, but, not in the fridge. Post-maturation: at room temperature.
