A cool fall breeze rustled the leaves outside of Peter’s toy-store window. “Pauline,” he piped.” Pat pitched Paul a prototype policy that primes Pat for promotion.” Pauline pulled the penguin puppet away from her proboscis and proclaimed: “Post-protozoan pull-toy and post-primate princess?” She probed. “She’s prolific,” Peter pronounced. “It’s the purple passion fruit,” she posed. “Patiently wait until shriveling, portion in pieces, spoon out the inside and place in pie-hole. UMM – perfecto.”
John Koman at White Dove Farm grows his one and a half acres of passion fruit vines across an old lemon orchard. The trees act as a natural trellis. His fruits are always beautiful in their purple way. If you haven’t seen them, they are a bit odd-looking – you might even wonder if they are tiny versions of the pods in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” but don’t fear – they are just fruits and wonderful ones at that.
Passion Fruit is a fragrant fruit and is best eaten when cut open and scooped out. They are ripe when the skin looks a bit shriveled. Passion fruits are rich in Vitamins A and C and are a good source of potassium and iron. The seeds are high in fiber as well. (Although to be super honest, I’m fond of the juice in the fruit but not really the seeds themselves, though they are edible.)
