Granada china: golden passion fruit or granadilla (Passiflora ligularis)
And here I am scoffing grapefruit, kiwi fruit, and granadilla in one sitting, plus muesli and yoghurt for breakfast - and I can't get enough of it.
The bright ornj layer is lukuma- tastes little melony with mebee just a whiff of choco/coffee, granadilla is mildly sweet, and guanabana tastes refresshingly green.
Well I did read that the granadilla tends to deteriorate quickly shortly after harvest.
I started out with some fresh ricotta, added some sliced peaches and scraped all the gooey pulp out of my granadilla.
I've never tried granadilla either, but I was also wondering if there might be a way to extract the pulp from the seeds like you do with passionfruit.
So, me, my granadilla, and my 25 euro cents headed on home.
