Passionate for Passion Fruit!




Passion fruit or Maracuja or Parcha (as I grew up calling it) is one of my favorite tropical fruits. The fruit can range between a nice shiny yellow or purple for the exterior and it consists of black seeds mixed in with a sweet gelatinous substance. This succulent interior is then extracted out of the fruit and made into refreshing juices, desserts, pastries, ice creams and supplements. The fruit has many benefits such as relieving anxiety, lowering blood pressure and decreasing insomnia. It is such a sweet and luscious fruit rich in vitamin C, potassium and fiber. You should try it sometime :-)
