This week (or next) our experiment with new fruit will continue with passion fruit. Look for a heavier fruit when you purchase. The fruit will also be very wrinkled when it is ready to eat.
The last new one we tried was a pommelo. It is the predecesor to grapefruit. Not nearly as tart or juicy, or as sweet at the ruby red variety. I was a bit disappointed with that one. Even though the fruit looks huge, the rind is nearly an inch thick. You end up with about the same amount of fruit as an average grapefruit. Interesting, but not sexy.
Passion fruit? Well, that one just has to be sexy. Plus, I kind of like the idea of something named "passion" that's at its best with a few wrinkles.
