Growing and harvesting
Maracuja plants produce year-round once they reach the fruit-growing stage. This happens 6 to 7 months after planting. The vines on which the maracuja grows always stay green, because the leaves change regularly. It is a perennial plant that grows to be 2 to 3 years old and grows several metres high.
Our growers recognise the moment when maracuja is ready to be harvested. The fruit starts to colour from green to yellow, the skin feels smoother and a yellow ring is visible on the trunk. Immediately after harvesting, all fruits go to the packing station, where the process starts with a quality check, after which maracujas are sorted for size and packed in bulk.

Recipes & preparation tips
Just like passion fruit, maracuja is also a delicious fruit to spoon out. That makes it an ideal snack, but you can do so much more with the maracuja. Processing in ice cream is a popular preparation. It is also a surprising addition in baked goods, cocktails and mocktails.
