Sweet granadilla

A refreshing flavour


The sweet granadilla is the fruit of a climbing plant belonging to the genus Passiflora. It is a cousin of the passion fruit: it is larger than the latter and is also sweeter and less tart. Orange-yellow and round, it has tough skin and contains small, hard, black seeds bathed in a highly fragrant pulp with a fresh and subtle flavour. It is best eaten with a teaspoon.

The sweet grenadilla contains vitamins and minerals with many benefits: vitamin A (eyesight, bone growth, healthy skin and mucous membranes), vitamin C (antioxidant properties, healthy bones and teeth, protection against infections), vitamin K (blood clotting), iron (formation of red blood cells), calcium (functioning of all of the body’s cells) and phosphorus (strong bones, teeth and cell membranes).
