The Green and purple fruits taste like pure exotic. And so intense that some spoons of it can charm a whole dessert. The passion fruit became their name by Spanish missionaries, who discovered them in the South American rainforest. They saw symbols for the instruments of the passion of Christ in the flowers and leaves and named the plant Passio Flora, suffering flower.
The climbing plant can be grown in the shade of larger trees and ranking up there on racks along such as grapevine. The fruits are almost as big as tennis balls and are harvested when the leathery skin begins to change colour purple. Then, she is ripe. The fruits are really fragrant, between sour and sweet, only when the shell starts to be shriveled. You can cut them in half and scoop the jelly-like flesh along with the small black seeds. If you think it is too acid, mix the passion fruit flesh in fruit salads, yogurt, ice cream, pudding and other desserts.
