Opinions on Passionfruit

Is this even really food?

I’ve had passionfruit before, either in ice cream or in salads or whatnot.

I’m still not sure how I feel about it.

I bought two of them today from Sobeys.  They were $1.99 each, which in Newfoundland currency, means they’re CHEAP.

Apparently, you’re supposed to pick the ones that are already ‘deflated’ a bit because that means they’re ripe.  The ones I chose were slightly moldy and wrinkled.  I took that to be a good sign.

I hacked them open and I have to say I was disappointed at the amount of pulp inside.  I think I got a tablespoon out of each one.  Certainly not worth $1.99.

The Pie balked at eating the pulp.  I can’t say I blame him.  It looks like some form of bilious kidney stone, or larval alien or something.
