Facts: A tropical fruit about the size of an egg, the passion fruit has a brittle outer shell and contains crunchy seeds surrounded by highly flavoured, slightly sour, yellow juicy pulp. The shell can be purple or yellow in colour, and is inedible.
Storage: At room temperature.
Preparation and cooking: Do not use the shell - it is inedible. The seeds an pulp can be used in pavlovas, fruit salads, etc.. Only a small amount is needed due to the intense flavour. The seeds and pulp can also be made into a juice or sauce but the juice can be quite thick and gloopy - it is easier to strain if the pulp and seeds are firstly gently warmed with a little sugar. Also good in jellies, mousses and drinks.
