Lilikoi (passion fruit) grows in abundance here. This vine likes to grow up and through the branches of other trees. The fruits are large egg shapped yellow balls with a smooth, glossy rind filled with many juicy flesh covered seeds. Once the fruit ripens it drops off the vine and makes "picking" these fruits easy.
Passion is high in beta carotene, potassium, dietary fiber, lycopene, and vitamin C. It is also great for people who have high blood pressure.
We sell Lilikoi's fresh picked from the land in our farm stand, and use them in some of our products like our Lilikoi Jam.
