Passionately green

A big thank you to everyone who left comments and answers for my previous post. The answer is passion fruit.

I did pick one with a diameter of about 4 cm off the vine and waited for it to ripen but it did not. Instead the skin started to become wrinkled so I decided to cut it open and examine its inside. I was not sure whether it was edible or not when it was unripe but I ate it anyway. As expected it was sour since it was unripe.

There are two common types of passion fruit - one that turns purple when it is ripe and the other bright yellow. I will visit the vine regularly to find out which type this one is - that is if I manage to find a ripe fruit on the vine.

  5. hehe...nice. I wish to have fresh passionfruit to pick too. My In-Law has a tree but hardly got any fruit. I can't wait to see if you'll get a ripen one next time.

    1. Just recently I have seen ripen ones in local supermarkets here but yet to see one ripen on the vine. Most probably the man would have collected all of them before they even have a chance to ripen, hahaha.
