I first had Passion fruit on an United Airlines flight to Australia / New Zealand. It was a little pile of pulp and seeds and I had no idea what it was, besides ugly and delicious. Passion fruit looks like a plum or pluot, are kind of hard to find and also tend to be somewhat expensive. When i find good ones i grab ’em because they are so delicious. The flavor is kind of orangy, zesty, citrusy and when you bite into a seed, one at a time, they crunch and then explode in your mouth with great flavor. Just plain fun.
I picked these up at the Manhattan Fruit Exchange, which is in the basement of the Chelsea Market.
