Passion fruit

The passion fruit is a a vine and, as such, needs support. This one found it in the form of a fence. People who raise the fruit commercially, build a support system that provides for greater space for spreading out. The larger fruit in this image is nearly ready for plucking. There's not a lot inside, except for a bunch of very small seeds and the pulp. All of this is scooped out and blended for the concentrate used for making juices.
