Granadillas are small in size, averaging 6-8 centimeters in length and 3-5 centimeters in diameter, and are oblong and elongated in shape with a very lightweight, hollow feel. The firm rind is brittle, smooth, and thick, initially appearing green and then transforming into an orange-yellow hue covered in light tan to white specks with maturity. Underneath the rind, the fruit is filled with a mucilaginous, pale white to almost clear pulp that encases many small, flat black seeds. Granadillas are aromatic with a slippery, moist, and smooth texture layered over a crunchy center, and have a bright, sweet, and mildly tart, fruity flavor.
Granadillas are available in the summer through fall.
Granadillas, botanically classified as Passiflora ligularis, are a subtropical fruit that grows on climbing vines that can reach over five meters in length and are members of the Passifloraceae family. Originally discovered throughout Central and South America, Granadillas are known by many names and spellings including Sweet Granadilla, Granadia, Grandilla, Granada China, and as Sugar fruit in local South American markets. Granadillas are not as well-known across the world as the purple passionfruit, but these petite fruits are increasing in popularity for their sweet flavor and are most commonly consumed fresh out of hand or are blended into fruit drinks and cocktails.
Granadillas are a good source of vitamins A, C, and K, potassium, fiber, iron, calcium, and phosphorus.
Granadillas are best suited for raw applications as their sweet flavor and smooth, crunchy texture is showcased when consumed fresh, out of hand. The hard rind can be sliced in half, and the pulp and seeds can be scooped out and eaten raw, layered over yogurt, or mixed into a fruit salad. Once cleaned, the rind can also be used as a serving bowl for small appetizers or dips. Granadillas are commonly strained and used for their juice, mixing the sweet liquid into fruit drinks, cocktails, and smoothies, or it can also be made into jams and marmalades. In addition to savory preparations, the pulp and seeds can be poured over ice cream, sorbets, pies, pavlova, and the juice can be mixed into cake frosting. Granadillas pair well with strawberries, blueberries, blood oranges, limes, mascarpone, and yogurt. The fruit will keep 1-2 weeks when stored are room temperature and 2-4 weeks when stored in the refrigerator. The storage life of the fruit also largely depends on when the fruit was picked.
When Spanish missionaries arrived in Central America, they were enthralled by the passionflower and saw Christian symbolism within the flower. The â€śpassionâ€ť in the flowerâ€™s epithet refers to the passion of Christ, the period of time between the last supper and Christâ€™s death on the cross. Within the intricacy of the flowerâ€™s anatomy, the missionaries found the crown of thorns in the seventy-two filaments radiating from the blossomâ€™s circumference, and the five wounds Jesus suffered in his execution in the five stamens. His faithful apostles, excluding Peter and Judas, could also be seen in the ten petals, and the three nails that held him to the cross were represented by three styles which function as a sort of botanical fallopian tube. This flowerâ€™s metaphorical legacy lives on today, where it continues to be known as â€śthe flower of the five wounds,â€ť â€śEspina de Cristoâ€ť or Christâ€™s thorn and, of course, passionflower.
Granadillas are native to the Americas, reaching as far south as Bolivia and Peru and stretching up through Central America into Mexico, and have been growing since ancient times. The subtropical plant thrives in elevations between 3,000 and 8,850 feet and was introduced in the early 19th century to regions within the United States, Asia, and the Caribbean, where it was sometimes labeled as an aggressive invasive species. Today Granadillas are available at local markets and specialty grocers and are found both growing wild and cultivated in North America, Central America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
