Distinctively different from the purple variety---sweet yet tart---the Golden passion fruit offers an array of cuisine options. Being a larger fruit you will get a lot of juice from just one passion fruit. You can eat the nectar inside the fruit as well as the seeds. It can be used as a flavoring in drinks, ice cream, sorbets, jams, sauces, and marinades. I like to drizzle it over bananas or use it as fruit dressing as is traditionally done in Australia.
To eat, just slice the fruit in half and scoop out the pulp. Throw out the skin although I have heard that there is a natural form of pectin in it, and people use it as a natural way to make jams and jellies. Keep fruit refrigerated for 4-6 days. People of Latin descent also know this fruit by the name" maracuja".
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the keys. You are invited to vist our farm for free as a tropical fuit of the month customer. We grow for you !!
