Passiflora edulis is a fruit cultivated in subtropical Latin America.
I picked a packet in Asda, no questions asked how far it travelled to get to that corner on the Isle of Dogs. I was just too glad they looked ripe, juicy and god damn tasty.
The first question people ask is how to eat it. I recommend slicing it in half and scooping the seeds out with a tea spoon.
Passionfruit is rich in potassium. So you know it helps calm down anxiety. I call it the natural chill out scoop.
50% of the vitamins contained is vitamin C. Now in the middle of the winter, or any season for that matter, that’s a win.
Rich in fiber and carbs, it gives a nice boost to your energy.
For the avid bakers, there are plenty of recipes for tartlets, tropical Eton mess, vegan pavlovas, lemonade, yogurt and honey mixes to name a few.
