Passion Fruit

 This is a very cool fruit that I never really knew much about or saw growing before.  It's growing as a shade plant on a wooden overhang in front of the vegetarian restaurant.  They use it to make a fruit smoothie that is so refreshing and delicious.

I understand it also comes in a pretty ruby color, too.

A web search led me to find out that:
The passion fruit juice relaxes and relieves stress.
Keeps the body hydrated.
The juice is rich in vitamin A, C, sodium, iron, phosphorus, fiber, B complex and calcium, vitamins and nutrients.

Terrific!  Sounds to me like a great excuse for a smoothie!
