Yellow-colored fruit (Passiflora edulus f. flavicarpa)
The yellow passion fruit tends to be larger and has brown seeds, but the pulp is less appealing and juicy than the purple. It is widely considered one of the most delicious fruits in the world and has a tart, aromatic flavor. They are commonly eaten fresh by simply halving the fruit and scooping out the pulp.
