Passion fruit is a nutritious tropical fruit that is gaining popularity, especially among health-conscious people. Despite its small size, it’s rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and plant compounds that could benefit your health.
Passion fruit is the fruit of the Passiflora vine, a type of passion flower. It has a tough outer rind and juicy, seed-filled center. There are several types that vary in size and color. Purple and yellow varieties are the most commonly available ones, including:
- Passiflora edulis. These are small round or oval-shaped fruits with purple skin.
- Passiflora flavicarpa. This kind is round or oval with yellow skin and usually slightly larger than the purple variety.
Though they’re a tropical fruit, some varieties can survive in sub-tropical climates.For this reason, they’re grown all over the world, and crops can be found in Asia, Europe, Australia, and South and North America.
We pack our flat rate boxes as full as we can. The total weight varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-6 pounds.
- Large Box contains up to 10-14 pounds.
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
