Passiflora ligularis (Grenadia / Sweet Grenadilla) 甜百香果
Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as Grenadilla or Sweet Grenadilla is a plant species in the Passiflora genus. See its flower from Wikipedia: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflora_ligularis
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!
