The Tiki chiller is made from fresh fruit that ships transport from South America. Depending on taste we combine pineapple, coconut, mango, watermelon, orange, strawberry... Well-known fruit, regardless of whether it is growing in our country or belongs to the category "exotic". All except the fruit tree, which is called passion fruit. You will find it in the Paradise Passion bottle (mango, peach and passion fruit).

Already the very name is problematic because it is not called in all countries with the same name.

Many Tiki chiller fans asked us what kind of fruit is it. In this article we will tell you something about this unusual fruit. Already the very name is problematic because it is not called in all countries with the same name. In England and America the name is “passion fruit“, in Australia and New Zealand these two words are merged into one – “passionfruit“, while in South Africa it’s “granadilla“, in Israel “pasiflora“, and in Venezuela “parchita“. The Hawaiian name is “lilikoi“, In the Zambezi, the Shona language called it “magrandera“, Indonesian name is “markisa“, and the Vietnamese called it “lạc tiên, chanh dây“ and “chanh leo“. In Paraguay, Brazil and northeastern Argentina, where it is grown in large quantities, the name is “maracuyá”. The Latin name is Passiflora edulis.

Passion fruit can be round or oval and can be yellow and purple

Passion fruit can be round or oval and can be yellow and purple: this second one is smaller but has more juice; it is sweeter and more aromatic than the yellow one. The fruit is juicy and full of seeds. It can be eaten and can be squeezed for juice, and often it is added to various types of fruit to improve the taste. It can be eaten fresh, the content is removed with a spoon, and more frequently it is used for making juice. It’s rich in vitamin C. In South America the dried leaves of passion fruit are used for making tea. Experts say that it is healing. People who suffer from insomnia and even epilepsy drink it as it provides a mild sedative effect. It is used in the treatment of post-traumatic disorders. Seeds are used to decorate cakes, and in Brazil passion fruit is used to make the famous alcoholic drink “Caipirinha“.

However, its main purpose is to make ice cream, creams, pudding, jelly, then it goes into various alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
