Bite of Passion. A bite of passion, health and well-being.
Although the passion flower is a climbing plant native to South and Central America, Garrido’s Fámily sells a Passion Fruit of autochthonous origin.
It is a variety from Huelva for the world, that is the philosophy of our company from Moguera.
Within the line of Exotics that we are offering to the markets, our Passion Fruit is the star product of FG.
The appearance of the flower, similar to a crown of thorns, led the Spanish colonizers to call it the fruit of passion, with the three pistils similar to the nails of the cross.
The orange sourness of its pulp is a new flavor experience. It is juicy and fresh, with citrus aromas. It is rich in calcium, iron and phosphorus.
We are immersed in this new project that is already a reality for FG. It is emerging as an exciting and different offer for our clients.
The passion fruit is cultivated in two campaigns, from June to August and from December to February, a total of 6 months of cultivation. During these two seasons we make all our efforts available so that the fruit obtains the best care in order to offer our clients, both national and international, quality fruit.
