THE tropical fruit, a passion fruit is about the size of an egg with a brittle purple or yellow shell encasing crunchy seeds and soft juicy flesh bursting with a strong, fragrant flavour.
Native to Brazil, Paraguay and Northern Argentina, passion fruit is so-called because it is a vine species of passion flower, also known as the ‘purple granadilla’ in South Africa.
Both the seeds and the pulp are used in salads and puddings such as cheesecake and pavlova. Passion fruit is also delicious in drinks, jellies and mousses.

With a true sweet and sour taste, MONIN Passion Fruit syrup is particularly enhanced with other exotic flavours such as mango. One of my favourite uses is with iced tea : mudde lemon slices and MONIN Passion Fruit syrup and top mix with fresh brewed tea.
