Passion Fruit – Fruits Must Try in Sri Lanka

Org dsc09136

This seedy fruit with its unique and remarkable taste of sweet and sour makes my mouth watering every time I think of it. Yes, it’s Passion Fruit I am passionate about. 🙂  

In Sri Lanka, you can find two varieties of passion fruits the yellow and dark purple, filled with juicy meat and abundance of seeds. Due to its aroma and flavouring property, it’s widely used in making ice-creams, cakes, pies, jellies and its syrup used in making cordials. Above all of that, I can not have enough of this amazing fruit on its own the way the mother nature gifted it to us.

And you should certainly sample some during your stay!
