About Liliko‘i

Liliko‘i is the Hawaiian word for passion fruit. We are familiar with the yellow-fruited liliko‘i, which is used commercially for desserts and beverages. However, there is also a dull purple liliko‘i which grows wild in many forests of Hawai‘i. It is introduced and is said to have been named after Liliko‘i, Maui, where it was first grown.
