Native to South America, passion fruit is now cultivated in tropical and warm regions around the world, where it is very popular. So popular, in fact, that the fresh fruit is not always easy to find outside those regions. In Hawaii, passion fruit (referred to as lilikoi on the islands) is often consumed as juice.
