Sweet Granadillas

Today I got the inmense pleasure to get these sweet granadillas, which is one of my favorite fruits, but difficult to find.

Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as the Sweet granadilla or Grenadia is a plant species in the Passiflora genus. The epithet ligularis comes from the plant's ligulate corollae.

Thanks so much for your views, comments, and FAVs. I apologize I was very absent commenting today, but it was a hectic day.
i've never seen this, i don't think. how does it taste? is it indigenous to the central american region? nice shot.

@summerfield They are very sweet, I love them. They are original of the Americas, but they have spread to other continents.

I guess by there botanical name they are similar to our Passionfruit.. and they are one of my favourite...

@julzmaioro I think they are the same, I read in Wikipedia that's the way they are known as in Australia.

You have a great eye for laying out a still life! While the flesh of the fruit looks yummy. . . gulp. . . I don't know what to think about the insides! Do you eat the flesh or just the inside part?

@skipt07 Only the flesh is eaten. It's easy, it's cut in two, and each part becomes like a little cup.

Great still like, well composed...interesting looking fruit too.

Interesting and unknown fruit but it looks a bit like passion fruit in the middle as I see @julzmaioro has said. They are very expensive in NZ

Beautiful picture of this unusual fruit. I am always up to giving a new one a try

These are presented well and I've heard they are sweet, but the insides look a bit slimy!
posted October 30th, 2014  
Such a unique fruit, but the connection to passionflower fruit is evident in what @TAffy calls "a bit slimy"!

I've never seen these. Are they grown in the States and where, if so? Never seen them in California, at least.

That does look delicious. It would be awesome on a pavlova.

I have never seen or heard of this fruit, but if it's called "fruit" as far as I'm concerned, it has to be good!!!! Fantastic presentation and composition!!
FAV!

What an unusual looking fruit. I have never seen this before or heard of it. Love your photo, Ana. Looks and sounds delicious. I just bought a pomegranate and have to open and eat it. Reminds me, I also have to take photos of it. Going to open it with instructions from you on your post. Learning a lot from you.

They look a lot like passionfruit, do they taste a bit like them too? Nice shot Ana.

Beautiful composition as always. They look a little like a pomegranate but you eat the flesh and not the seeds? How did you get these?
