Passion fruit is native to Brazil and was named by Spanish missionaries. The fruit is grown throughout the world in tropical and sub-tropical areas. It is round to ovoid in shape and has a tough rind, but the center is juicy and filled with seeds. It grows on vines, which can grow up to 20 feet per year, however, the plant typically only lives about seven years. The passion fruit has a unique flavor that is aromatic, which makes it a great ingredient in juice blends. It is known to have calming properties and is commonly used as a sleeping aid and to relieve anxiety. It is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C and B complex, as well as minerals. It is great as a concentrate and an ingredient in juice blends.
Juice concentrates are at the core of what we do. When the fruit is not grown in our area, we procure product from select, pre-approved suppliers from various parts of the world. Everything we sell goes through rigorous evaluation and testing procedures. Juice concentrates are stable products, easy to store and to transport, and work extremely well in beverages, hard seltzers, cocktail mixes, kombucha, and any nutraceutical application.
