Passion grandiflora

Does anyone have this fruit and what do they do with it. a huge green oval passionfruit type fruit

This is Passiflora quadrangularis - a lovely vine and great fruit. Of course it does not go black as lythande1 suggests - she thinks of the normal black NZ passion fruit.

It is also not the banana passionfruit (there are several varieties of that also ritebuy)

You can either let it ripen or you can use it unripe like a vegetable. Often cut up and cooked in curries!

Green means it's not ripe, the skin goes purple/black when ripe.

short attention span ?

No, this fruit is huge and it goes a lighter green when ripe. Apparently you can boil the flesh and eat it. oops, I got the name wrong. it is a Passionfruit - Giant Granadilla

that's a banana passion fruit not as sweet as the purple eat when it turns yellow or make jam

See other thread - these passionfruit that OP is talking about are huge. I am voting this one off, so maybe others will as well?
