In this blog we tell you everything you need to know about the yellow passion fruit, which is also called the yellow Maracuya or Markoesa. Let’s get started!
About the yellow passion fruit
The exotic fruit is from countries like Peru, New Zealand, and Hawaii. Yellow exotic fruit grows in tropical and subtropical climates on climbing vines. The yellow passion fruit plant is small and grows quite quickly. There is no such thing as a yellow passion fruit tree.
The incredible taste of the tropical fruit
The juicy thick flesh of a sweet yellow passion fruit has a sour, slightly sweet acidic taste. The taste can be described as a tropical explosion in your mouth and is a little intense. The little black seeds inside the flesh are edible! They are crunchy and somewhat bitter, but the taste is not really noticeable. For people that love a ‘tangy’ taste the yellow exotic fruit will be their new favorite!
Nutritional value of a passiflora yellow
Not only is the yellow maracuya super tasty, it is also really healthy! The yellow fruit is low in calories and fat (0 grams!).

The high amounts of fiber in the tropical fruit can be good for bowel and heart health. Finally, the exotic fruit is high in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium which is good for keeping your body healthy!
