If you love tropical fruits, you’ll love the flavor of passion fruit. Passion fruit tastes like a unique blend of sour and sweet with a very floral finish and citrussy notes. It’s a little like pineapple or yellow kiwi, though some say it has grapefruit, pear, and guava notes.
As passion fruit ripens, the skin will become darker, sometimes almost black.
You can also gauge a passion fruit’s ripeness by the texture of the skin. If it has a little bit of a wrinkly texture, it’s ready to crack open! If the skin is still smooth, wait a little longer. The passion fruit will still be a little too tart to eat.
