Passion fruit (Buah Markisa)

Passion fruits in my garden
Passiflora Edulis @ Passion fruit @ `Markisa'  is high in beta carotene, potassium and dietary fibre. Passion fruit juice is a good source of Vitamin C. It is ready to eat fresh, however it can also be cooked to use as filling or sauce. It also can be used as jam or jelly. It is absolutely delicious! Cut the fruit in half and scoop out the seed.  The seed can be eaten (The seeds provide a crunchy, unique feeling), or used as dressing for ice cream or yoghurt. However, the seeds can be removed by straining if you do not like them.
