Purple passionfruit is slightly smaller than yellow passionfruit, averaging 5 to 7 centimeters in diameter, and has a round to oval shape with curved ends. The skin is smooth, waxy, and purple to dark red when young, developing darker hues with a leathery, dimpled, and wrinkled consistency with maturity. Underneath the surface, there is a white and spongy, inedible pith encasing a seed cavity. The flesh, also known as the pulp, consists of small and edible black seeds surrounding by a yellow to orange sack that is aqueous, slippery, and succulent. Purple passionfruit is highly aromatic and has a tropical and floral, sweet-tart flavor with musky undertones reminiscent of guava.
