My parents grew passion fruit on vines in their front yard in Australia. It’s been my favorite fruit for as long as I can remember. I can’t always find it here in Southern California but we are lucky enough to have a small farm who does grow them, and occasionally I can pick them up at a local farmer’s market too. 

Besides just cutting them in half to eat them I love including them in recipes, including this passion fruit sangria.
