(Passiflora Edulis Var Edulis)

The Gulupa, also known as Purple Passion Fruit, belongs to the Passiflora family, just as Granadilla and Maracuya (Yellow Passion Fruit). Its hard skin ranges from green/purple to reddish/brown. The gelatinous pulp is of an intense orange color with a fresh, slightly acidic flavor, and it contains black edible seeds.

We will know if the passion fruit is ripe because the skin creases a little. Fruits with a harder, smooth skin can also be consumed, but they have a less sweet flavor. Unripe fruits will ripen best at room temperature. To consume the fruit, divide it into halves and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. The Purple Passion Fruit is also used to prepare salads, juices, sauces, ice cream, and custards. Its skin is not edible.
