Passion Fruit Watermelon

Not to sound cheesy (okay, maybe a little bit), but I’m pretty passionate about passion fruit. If you’ve never tried it before, it has sweet and tart flavor – it basically tastes like paradise. You probably won’t find the fruit in your everyday grocery store, but if you stumble upon a batch, stock up! Passion fruit is $$$ here in southern California, but I found this fabulous little exotic fruit store in Westminster that sells it for $4.00 per pound instead of $3 each like you’ll find in regular grocery stores around here. So every other week I’ll stock up on about 20 or so. Ohhh these are my favorite! I’m a little crazy for this watermelon, passion combo. It’s fantastic! Sweet and tangy! My weekly tropical get-away.
