A Taste You’ll Fall in Love With

Passion Fruit

Considered the largest berry of all plants, passion fruit got its name because it’s one of the many species of passion flowers—Passiflora—that grow the passion fruit that we know and love. Also known as parchita and maracuya, these grow on vines right in South Florida, where we source our homegrown tropical fruit. They contain a soft pulp and seeds inside a hard ring. This jelly-like pulp has a sweet yet tart flavor. The flesh and seed are both edible and provide antioxidants (Vitamin C) that support the immune system.

J&C Tropicals carries purple and yellow passion fruit varieties.

  1. Cut in half and scoop out the edible seeds or use as is.
