This tropical fruit is the size of a tennis ball and has pink, purple or yellow-green skin.  Dominican Republic’s native passion fruit are commonly yellow. Inside the think skin is pulp with countless small dark seeds.  The crunchy seeds of the fruit are very vital sources of fiber. The pulp is a light-yellow or orange color and has a strong sweet fragrant.  Passion fruit can be enjoyed by itsself or used in a favorite recipe.
