My Favorite Australian Fruit

What is My Favorite Australian Fruit?

Passion Fruit I Poster PrintThe dark purple passion fruit!

Before I lived in Australia, I had never seen the likes of a passion fruit, let alone tasted a freshly ripened one.

Honest to Goodness…it’s the most delicious fruit I’ve ever eaten!

Literally, we had so many of them, as there were passion fruit plants all around the backyard where I lived. I could just go outside and pick them right there!

It has to be dark and wrinkly to be completely ripe.

Then, you slice it in half, take a spoon and scoop our the golden insides and the fabulous seeds!

I could seriously bathe in this stuff! I love it!

Cooking With It?
You can, but why would you want to? LOL…It’s so perfect just the way it is.

However, you can mix it fresh with other juices enhancing flavor and aroma, and they’re beautiful on desserts.

Since I’ve moved back home to Canada and the USA, I haven’t had a passion fruit so delicious.

Here, imported, they don’t even compare!

Passionfruit are indigenous to South America but are widely grown wherever the temperature permits with frost-free winters.

Plus, they’re so beautiful in that their flowers, passion flowers, are so very colorful and unique! Beautiful!

We planted a winter-hearty passion fruit sold here in Ontario a few years back, and it’s never given fruit yet… 🙁

P.S. Even if you can’t get passion fruit perfect and ripe, you still will love the flavor! Check out this great Passionfruit & Mango Rooibos tea I found…Yum:

Mango & Passionfruit Rooibos Caffeine-free Mango & Passionfruit Rooibos Caffeine-free

Deliciously fruity with succulent passion fruit, and exotic with rose petals, mallow blossoms and sunflowers. The caffeine-free Rooibos gives the blend a smooth, gently sweet basis. Always brew very lightly using a pinch of leaves in a tea bowl or 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of leaves per 6-cup teapot. Do not add milk. Boil freshly drawn cold water, warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Add the tea and pour on boiling water. Brew for 2-5 minutes. If brewing in a tea bowl, top up repeatedly with more hot water. South African Rooibos, hibiscus, rose petals, blue mallow & marigold flowers, flavouring. GBP2.10 per 100g
