TIME TO HARVEST
You will know it is time to harvest when fruits are plump, have a slight give, and are fully colored. In the yellow forms, the color is deeply golden and the purple fruits will be nearly black. Slightly wrinkled fruits are super ripe and will have a sweeter taste than the smooth skinned passion fruit.
At room temperature, passion fruit lasts for approximately two weeks. However, it can last for one month when placed in an airtight container in the freezer.
