Panama Passionfruit: Royal Randwick Fruit Market, Randwick (22 Dec 2011)

73 Belmore Road, Randwick NSW 2031

Passionate about passionfruit

Since trying the Panama Passionfruit ($1.29) from Royal Randwick Fruit Market it soon became my favourite over the normal smaller purple ones which I grew up on. I'm not sure where this version originates from but it's larger and provides more filling. I've also found it to be a bit sweeter than the normal purple variety but it could also depend on how ripe they are. I've recently seen them in Norton Street Grocer in Westfield Bondi Junction for $0.99 each or 4 for $3. I love passionfruit on vanilla ice cream or with yoghurt and a bit of honey. If anyone has further details about this variety please share the information.
