What to Look For:
Choose the largest, heaviest passion fruits. If ripe, the skin will be wrinkled but firm with a purple-brown color. Smooth skin indicates that it is unripe.
Easy Storage and Preparation:
Ripen at room temperature until the skin wrinkles. They will keep at room temperature for a few days, or longer in the refrigerator.
Use the juice to flavor drinks, fruit soups, dessert creams and custards. Although each fruit will yield very little juice, it will be very strong in flavor.
NOTE: An excellent source contains more than 20 percent of the Daily Value for that nutrient. A good source contains between 10 and 19 percent of the Daily Value.
