Banana Passion Fruit

While roaming through a local market, an oblong yellow fruit caught my eye. At first sight I couldn't figure out what it was, the lady selling the fruit said "maracuya" this is a passiflora? It turns out to be Passiflora mollissima, an odd shaped passionfruit species. The lady explained that the plant is growing at her home about two hours from our location. A Native of central Brazil, but can be found thought the world. The flavor of the fruit was very sweet and tangy, the seeds were hard and crunchy. Seems like a fruit that would be great for juice making.
