Passion Fruit

Highly fragrant, egg-shaped and purple, red, or yellow when mature, the passion fruit, or purple granadilla ("little pomegranate" in Spanish), is rich in vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber -- with only 16 calories per fruit. Tasting a lot like guava, enjoy the passion fruit sliced in half, scooping out the seedy pulp. Serve it in fruit salads, or with chicken, pork, or fish. Strain the pulp and use it in juices, cocktails, desserts, and sauces.
