If you love passion fruit or have always wanted to use it in a recipe, look no further. This list has some of the best passion fruit recipes all in one place!
How to Know When Passion Fruit is Ripe
Passion fruit is ripe when the skin is dark and slightly wrinkly. You can also feel the weight of the pulp inside or give the fruit a shake. If you hear and feel the pulp inside, that's the fruit you want.
Another way to know if passion fruit is ripe is to smell them. If you get a tropical aroma, that fruit is ready to go!
How to Eat Passion Fruit
Ripe passion fruit is easy to prepare and eat. The first step is always to wash the fruit thoroughly to ensure any pesticides or other bacteria have been removed.
Cut each fruit in half and dig out the pulp and seeds with a spoon. But, try not to get any of the white layers because it is bitter and not tasty.
At this point, you can strain the seeds or leave them and use the pulp for any of the recipes on this list.
Where to Buy Passion Fruit
Passion fruit is common in Hawaii and California in the United States and sometimes you can get lucky at a specialty grocery store or farmer's market in other regions. Most importantly, passion fruit like warm, tropical climates so that is where you will have the most luck.
If you can't find fresh passion fruit, some grocery stores carry a frozen version. My experience has been positive using the frozen version.
One other option is to buy the pulp online. It's also another great option and still packs the same flavor you want for any of these recipes.
Are Passion Fruit Seeds Edible?
Yes, passion fruit seeds are edible, though a little tart. As you can see in the recipe photos, the seeds can be part of your creation and also add a beautiful contrast in color.
The seeds are good for you too! They contain antioxidants and fiber which are always a nice addition to your diet. The fruit is good for you as well and can be full of iron, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, and B vitamins.
