Passion fruits belong to the Passiflora family and grow on climbing plants. This family also includes other exotic fruits such as granadillas, curubas and maracujas.

Passion fruits have a leathery purple skin that isn't meant to be eaten. Its gelatinous yellow flesh contains edible black seeds. It has a refreshing sweet & sour taste. The riper the fruit, the sweeter its taste.

A wrinkled passion fruit isn't overripe, but in fact, a wrinkled passion fruit is sweeter than a fruit with a smooth skin. The fruit can be eaten in either stage.

Colombia is our main passion fruit supplier. Our supplier in Colombia has a total of 107 hectares of land across 7 areas, on which he cultivates crops including passion fruit. The plots are all located between 1,700 and 2,100 metres above sea level, in the Andes Mountains in Colombia's "coffee region". This region is known for its exceptionally fertile volcanic soil and many hours of sun.

It takes 10 to 12 months for a seed to grow into a full passion fruit vine that is ready to be harvested for the first time. The plant has a life cycle of around 2 to 4 years and produces passion fruit year-round. It takes around 12 weeks from flower to fruit. The fruit is harvested at the time that its colour begins to change from green to purple

Origin Nature's Pride Passion fruit

Passion fruit - ColombiaColombia Passion fruit - VietnamVietnam

from seed to harvest

Passion fruit grow on a tropical vine, easily recognised by its beautiful passion flowers when it's in full bloom. The passion fruit from Colombia grows high up in the Andes mountain range. In Vietnam the vine grows in the mountains as well. Lots of sunlight and temperature at these heights is ideal for the cultivation of passion fruit. On average two to four months after the flowers appear, the passion fruit are ripe and ready to be harvested. Our suppliers harvest the fruit very carefully when the skin starts to change colour from green to purple.
