Passion and a mystery in fruit
BIG, bold and oh what tasty beauties, Gladstone's Elaine James has been tucking into the lush tropical delights of fresh passionfruit.
The pale coloured beasts don't look like passionfruit but that is the mystery.
A friend gave Elaine a bag of these extra big passionfruit when she was holidaying down the Bruce Hwy at Maryborough to go on a whale watching boat trip.
The XXL fruit are tasty and very juicy but Elaine is curious to find out exactly what species they are.
"They don't look like passionfruit but they are. And they definitely taste like passionfruit,” Elaine said.
"They are very juicy and have not lost any flavour because of their size.
"It's the end of the season's crop and although large they are smaller than what was grown.”
