Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as the sweet granadilla is a variety of passion fruit. It is made up of a hard, shiny shell that contains a jelly-like pulp with delicious edible seeds.
When ripe, the fruit is orange and firm and can be kept stored at room temperature for at least one week. The sweet granadilla is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, calcium and fiber! One study has even found the seeds to contain antifungal properties.
There are many different ways to eat this exotic and delightful fruit. You can simply cut it in half and eat the pulp with a spoon, or you can add it to yogurt or fruit salads. The pulp can also be used to make marmalade, jellies and pie fillings.
