Several are recognized just in indigenous markets in South and also Central America and also the West Indies. Industrial production of passion fruit is based upon the purple varieties Passiflora edulis Sims as well as the yellow type Passiflora edulis f. flavicarpa Degener. It is still in question whether the yellow passion fruit is a mutant of the purple P. edulis or its hybrid with other varieties.
