The passion fruit is a sweet tropical fruit that is native to South America and is mainly grown for its juices, pulp and seeds. The edible part of these fruits is hidden beneath a bitter, leathery skin. Passion fruit is also nutritious, as it is high in beta-carotene, potassium, vitamin C and dietary fibre. There are two main types of passion fruit -- one is yellow and the other is purple. The yellow variety is used to make juice, while the purple ones are sold as fresh fruit.
