There are many ways to enjoy this incredible fruit. Here are some of the easiest, most common ways of how to slice a passion fruit:
Slice your passion fruit in half and scoop out the pulp
Use your thumbs to apply gentle pressure until it cracks open. Pull apart and scoop out the juice seeds.
The passion fruit is actually a member of the “berry” family. Passion fruit has also gained popularity because it is a rich source of antioxidants. It also contains significant amounts of vitamins A and C, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. It’s also high in fiber, has a low glycemic index, improves sleep, eye health, your heart, bones, anxiety, the immune system and on and on. Heck, it might even help you fly one day, who knows!
Passion fruit can be stored on your countertop to ripen. You’ll know they’re ripe when the passion fruit’s skin begins to get slightly wrinkled or dimpled.
Once ripened, refrigerate passion fruits to keep them fresh for up to two weeks.
Freezing passion fruit is a great option if you want to keep these tropical fruits fresher, longer. It’s best to freeze passion fruit pulp, not the whole fruit. To freeze, first, scoop the passion fruit pulp from its peel and place it into a freezer-safe container.
