It can be grown virtually in any frost‐free climate. Passion fruit is prized for its intoxicating aroma and bright flavor. The pulp of the fruit is typically squeezed for juice and is often used for making jams, juice blends, deserts and cocktails.

Passion fruit also contains calcium, a mineral involved in enhancing cell renewal to help smooth and revitalize the skin.
