Passion Fruit

March 18, 2013

The passion fruit grows as a number of different cultivars in various tropical climates. From Wikipedia:

It is cultivated commercially in warmer, frost-free areas for its fruit and is widely grown in Antigua, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, the Caribbean, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, East Africa, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Portugal (Madeira), Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka, South Africa, United States (California, Florida, and Hawaii), Venezuela and Philippines.

As a consequence, it has tons of different names.  In Hawai’i, it’s known as a lilikoi and comes in purple or yellow varieties.  In Colombia, it’s yellow-orange only and known as a granadilla.
