    Default granadillo fruit

    There is a fruit in the DR called granadillo from which a juice is made. The granadillo that I saw was oval shaped about 12 inches long with a yellow / green skin. Inside, the flesh was white with many black seeds in a translucent gel like substance.

    I am trying to find nutritional information on this fruit without success (fat/cholesterol content, vitamins, etc.). Does anyone know if there is an English word for granadillo or where nutritional information can be found?

    Thanks in advance.

    Default Pomegranate?

    coulda been that, as granado is promegranate.....but sounds awfully large for that. But after seeing the carrots here, I believe size is irrelevant. I'm sure HB or someone will pipe in with a correct response.

    Default Passion Fruit

    To the best of my limited knowledge the granadillo is a form of chinola.
    Apparently the yellow color and large size indicates that this fuit is
    of the South American variety.
    In any case , like the chinola it is in the family of passion fruits.

    I love those sites, chola1978! I've tried to unravel the granadillo mystery for a Dominican Cooking article, and found that it was - as those sites say - a variety of passionfruit. It isn't sharp or tangy like passionfruit.

    Dominicans blend it and drink it as a smoothie and it tastes somewhat pear-like. It's also lovely combined with other fruits, including passion fruit itself, in a smoothie.

    chola1978,

    I looked at the links that you provided and yes that is the fruit that I was referring to. Thank you very much. I was able to find a lot of information going from there.
