Maracuya the Spanish word for “passionfruit” are large, round to oblong fruits with thick, green or bright yellow rinds. The skin is smooth and may be covered in light yellow specks. Inside is a soft white pith and a large hollow cavity filled with brown, edible seeds encased in bright yellow, gelatinous pulp. The pulp has an intensely sweet, floral aroma with an acidic taste and tropical flavour.
When ripened the maracuya will be wrinkled and soft to the touch.
