The most common varities have the size of a golf ball, but they can grow up to the size of a small melon. Passion flower has a thick, smooth, shiny skin which is not edible. The commercial varities have a purple skin with green nuances. As soon as the fruit ripes, the skin starts to shrink and shrivels up. The fruit with smooth film has a sour taste, the one with the film, slightly shrivelled, is sweet. The wizened fruit indicates an high degree of ripening. The pulp of passion fruit is smooth, very aromatic, fragrant and refreshing, sometimes sour or sweet , and there are some mucilaginous grains with three different colors : yellow, orange and light green. It also contains small blackish seeds that are crisp and edible and can also be white or colorless. The unripe passion fruits have a very sour taste.
