Passion fruit is most abundant in the summer through autumn seasons and is available year-round making it a reliable product to source despite the time of year. On the other hand, organic passion fruit is more challenging to acquire on a whim. If you need an organic product, contact our team at Northwest Naturals, and we will work with you to ensure you get your products before your deadlines.
Passion fruit is sweet, tropical, and citrusy but tart and tangy, as well. A strong, fruity aroma compliments the flavor. Passion fruit is less common in the United States, so it can still be considered unique, memorable, and exotic.
Passion fruit is easily and typically paired with other tropical flavors like pineapple, coconut, mango, and guava. Pairing citrus fruits, especially orange, creates a balanced blend that works well, and for the daring recipe developers, pairing it with chocolate has been a trendy and delicious combination!
We also recommend adding heat to those combinations with habanero or other chilis to add an extra layer of flavor and dynamics to the sweet, fruity base.
Applications for Passion Fruit
Beverages and desserts are perfect canvases to create something deliciously unforgettable with passion fruit. Elevate cocktails that use champagne, Cointreau, ice wine, rum, and tequila by applying the fruit’s tropical sweetness. Passion fruit Moscow mules, mojitos, margaritas, caipiroskas, and martinis simply scrape the surface of all the delicious cocktail/mocktail possibilities. Kombuchas, carbonated beverages, and iced tea are nonalcoholic beverages that also pair well.
The fruit’s natural sweetness makes it perfect for tarts, pavlovas, cheesecakes, mousse, pudding, bars, cookies, cakes, and many other baked goods and chocolates.
Passion fruit is uncommon in savory applications, but there are possibilities! Use it in salad dressings, hot sauces, or glaze for chicken, fish, and pork dishes.
