Small, tropical fruits known as “passion fruits” (or granadillas) are produced by a specific variety of passion flowers. They have tough, inedible skin (it can be used for making a jam), but when cut open, a yellow, juicy, edible inside is revealed. The passion fruit got its name because priests in the 1500s thought parts of the passion flower symbolized the “passion,” or suffering and death, of Jesus. Despite being small and only the seeds being edible, passion fruits are highly nutritious. Here are the top 5 health benefits of passion fruits: 1. They help manage blood sugar levels./br> 2.
