North Queensland, QLD

Passionfruit vines are strong little buggers BUT they do prefer to be in subtropical regions! As long as they shiver through frosty nights (and are nurtured with lots of tender loving care!), they can adapt to other areas too. In years gone by many Aussie households had a passionfruit vine winding it’s way up the side of the shed or patio. They are vigorous climber and incredibly productive – what better way to cover an ugly fence or shed while returning a bumper crop of delicious home-grown fruit.

That’s why we make sure that the passionfruit that goes into our juice comes from the perfect climate in sunny, frost-free areas so that you can enjoy fruit that has that perfect balance between sweetness and that trademark zingyness and sour of passionfruit.  

North Queensland is another one of our favourite regions to source our passionfruit! And even then, we make sure that the types of passionfruits that we pick there share a common characteristic, and that is a high fruit to skin ratio to make sure it’s as juicy as they get. 

Like many tropical fruits, passionfruit originated in South America.  Like pineapples, passionfruit don’t keep ripening.
