Inside Fierce Fruit: Introducing the Maracuya (Golden Passion Fruit)

Welcome to Inside Fierce Fruit, where we give you an inside look into the fruits that we later turn into our wonderful purees! 🍉🍓🍅🥭🍍

In this blog post, we'll be introducing you to the Maracuya, also known as the Golden Passion FruitThe Maracuya has a bright yellow rind and an equally bright yellow pulp. It belongs in the Passiflores family, and is the cousin of the Curuba Passion Fruit. Watch our video below:

Taste

If you love passion fruit, this golden variety has the recognizable “passion fruit” flavor - an intensely sweet and floral aroma, while being potently sour & tart in taste. This variety is typically found in Central and South America, and is actually a little bit more sour than the Gulupa (Purple Passion Fruit; pictured next to the Maracuya).

Nutrients

It's very high in vitamins, especially Vitamin C, Niacin, and Riboflavin.

Common ways to eat the Maracuya

It is spectacular in cocktails, beers, and other beverages. For recipes, adding sweetener will balance out the acidity of the maracuya, and bring out its full tropical flavor. For brewing, consider adding lactose to round out the flavor. The other advantage of the Maracuya is that it is generally available year-round.
