Granadilla

Granadilla

A member of the passion fruit family, inside the crisp orange shell of the granadilla there is a mass of flesh-covered seeds that look similar to passion fruit but are green with a slight scent of lime. Only the seeds of the granadilla are eaten - the shell is inedible. Look for a granadilla that has a clean orange coloured shell and no visible brown markings. Available all year.

Uses: Enjoy the refreshing tangy flesh on its own straight from the shell or use it to flavour ice cream or yogurt. Granadillas give a delicious tang to papaya and melon.

To store: Store at room temperature for up to 10 days.

To prepare: Cut through the brittle skin and scoop out the seeds with a small spoon.
