In Hawaii passion fruit is locally called lilikoi and comes in yellow and purple varieties. It can be cut in half and the seeds scooped out with a spoon or your tongue. It is used as a dessert flavoring for malasadas, cheesecakes, cookies and ice cream and Lilikoi-flavored syrup is a popular topping for shaved ice. Passion fruit is also favored as a jam or jelly, as well as a butter. Most passion fruit comes from backyard gardens or is collected from the wild. Check with Hana Picnic Co.
