How is passion fruit grown and harvested?

Currently, passion fruit is grown in tropical and subtropical regions in the world, and is generally available all year round. However, warmer months are when they are at their peak. Passion fruit plants can be grown from seeds or cuttings. Depending on the species and environmental factors, passionfruit vines can take 5 to 18 months to fruit. Then, about 80 days after flowering, passion fruit is ready for harvest, often in the middle or late summer. Passion fruit is ripe when the color turns from deep green to deep purple or yellow, and when it is all wrinkly. 

How does passion fruit benefit?

Passion fruit is a nutritious fruit with a wide variety of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Despite its small size, it is a nutrient-dense fruit with a good source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, etc. Thanks to its fiber content, passion fruit can benefit your gut health, prevent blood sugar strikes, and lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Along with other antioxidants and vitamins A, and C, passion fruit is beneficial to your eyesight and immune system. Additionally, it also benefits the healthy development of skin and hair. Moreover, the magnesium in passion fruit is essential to help decrease stress and anxiety. 



Tea is a crucial part of making passion fruit tea, which can be black or green tea. These two types of tea are both made from the same plant leaves, but are different in the making process. When blended with other fruit flavors, black tea is usually preferred because of its reddish brown color liquor, pleasant aroma, and mild taste. Meanwhile, brewed green tea has a fresher green color with a natural aroma and stronger acid taste. To choose passion fruit tea ingredients, both black and green tea are reasonable and bring amazing taste.

How is tea made?

When making black tea, in the first steps, fresh tea leaves are picked by hand for the highest quality.  After that, the tea is withered and slightly ground to bring out the juice. Following is the most important stage, fermentation, which creates biochemical changes. To stop the fermentation, the tea is dried and then sorted and packed. The difference between making green tea and black tea is the fermentation stage. After being harvested, the tea is fried or steamed before being rolled to crush the leaves’ cells. The green tea then dried, upgraded and packed like black tea.

Moreover, there is a certain amount of caffeine in tea, combined with L-theanine, leading to relaxation and better concentration.
