Fruit Friday: Granadilla

This week’s fruit is the Granadilla (pronounced gra-na-dee-ja), a native to the Andes mountains. It is cultivated between 1700 to 2600 meters and it grows out of a vine. It’s in the same family as the maracuyá (passion fruit) and about the same size:

The inside is also very similar, composed of jelly-covered seeds.

The taste is more sweet than maracuyá and unlike the maracuyá you can eat the seeds. Most of the time you just eat the granadilla raw.

It’s also one of those fruits that will not go bad too quickly and is not messy. Probably one of the best fruits to have around.
