Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

Passion fruit starts as a seed that grows into a shrub that produces the first fruits after 10 to 12 months. A remarkable detail is that the passion fruit plant produces fruits year-round. From the stage when a flower appears on the plant, it takes around 12 weeks for passion fruit to develop into a fruit.

The moment passion fruit turns from green to purple is the sign for the grower that it is time to harvest. The passion fruit are then subjected to a strict quality control before being sorted for size. Packaging is done in bulk boxes of 2 kg, with the passion fruit packed in plastic bags. This creates a microclimate in the plastic bag that extends the shelf life of the passion fruit. Transport to Nature's Pride is by boat.
