Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as Grenadilla or Sweet Grenadilla is a plant species in the Passiflora genus. See its flower from Wikipedia:

It is a fast growing climber with large leaves and it can grow to 14′. It is native to South America and has a strong but fragile, orange skin. The fruit has the shape and size of a plum. The shell is hard and shiny. The fruit contains a yellow, jelly-like pulp with a scattering of black edible seeds. The fruit has a sweet and very little sour flavour.


I like its fruit size and sweetness but I do prefer sweet fragrant juice with balanced acidic flavour. Is there any ‘perfect’ passion fruit variety? Do you know any? I would like to grow few for its pretty flowers and delicious fruit!

我想找想種完美的百香果–有美花欣賞和好吃的水果的品種. 你知道有這種品種嗎?

  1. While living in Brazil I learned to LOVE this fruit! They call it Maracuja.
    They make a wonderful mousse of 1 can sweet condensed milk, 1/2 cup juice, 1 cup heavy cream.
    Wip the cream, add the milk and juice, let set in the fridge for an hour or so. Enjoy!

    I also use: 1 can sweet condensed milk, 1/2 cup of juice and 1 pkg Philly cheese as filling in a cheese cake, That yellow cake is perfect for easter!

    I have some seeds a Brazilian friend brought me last year (it is to cold to grow in Sweden if you do not have a greenhouse)
    I can send them in a letter to you if you do not feel uncomfortable to give me your address?
    You can send the address to my mail,

  2. I love the Passifloras. There are a few species hardy even to zone 5 with fragrant flowers, but the fruits are not very sweet. I often see the purple passionfruits available in stores here, but they’re like the McIntosh of Passionfruit. I had one Granadilla in Costa Rica years ago that knocked my socks off with flavor- it was so intensely delicious! I wish I knew which kind it was though. Maybe it was the Giant Granadilla?

  3. I grow Passiflora edulis. Beautiful purple and white flowers with dark purple fruit. I mix the juice with a honey, lemon, and a touch of vanilla and pour it over fruit salad or vanilla ice cream. Yum!!
