These exotic tropical passion fruit flowers bloom from April to November, giving way to tart yellow fruit about 3 inches in diameter. The vines are vigorous, often growing over 20ft in a single year. The yellow fruit falls from the plant when ripe. Fruits are best eaten when wrinkles appear on their surface. Pulp is often eaten fresh, seeds are edible. Used as a flavoring in drinks, desserts, sauces, and many other foods. The lilikoi is of an unknown origin. In recent years, the lilikoi (its Hawaiian name) has been well established throughout the Pacific Islands and parts of Central and South America.
