Granadillas, translated from Spanish for 'little pomegranate' is the commonly known South African name for the passion fruit. Tart in flavour, the seeds crunchy and the fragrance tropical and heady, the skin shrivels as the fruit ripens. Granadilla pulp pairs beautifully when used in the frosting for vanilla chiffon cake , over Greek yoghurt with honey and toasted almonds, in layered muesli, fruit and yoghurt pots and in semi freddo with figs and saffron.
