Are Passion Fruit Seeds Poisonous?

Two of the questions I’ve been asked over the years are if passion fruit seed poisonous and if you chew them or swallow them whole?

The answer is no, passion fruit seed are not poisonous.

When you cut a fruit open you will see lots of little black seeds, they are a bit smaller than watermelon seeds. Each seed is surrounded by a small yellow pocket of fruit that has the amazingly aromatic juice inside.

Scoop out the seeds, juice and pulp and eat it; you can chew them up or swallow the seeds whole. It will be a little tart, a little sweet, smell amazing and a lot of crunchy.

Passion fruit seeds are high in magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C and they add a nice little crunch to whatever you put them on. Passion fruit is rich in antioxidants and vitamins and they are low on the glycemic index. They also are high in fiber and we all know what that does for you😊.

My favorite way to eat the seeds is in a popsicle. I open up the fruit, scoop it into a popsicle mold and freeze it. Sometimes I add apple bananas to sweeten up the fruit a bit.

Overall, I would say they are quite the opposite of poisonous, they are good for you!

Let us know how you like the seeds.
