Very closely related to the Giant Granadilla,
the water lemon is found in many parts of Latin America and the West Indies.
It has oval, yellow or orange fruits which are about three inches long. They are eaten raw or used for juice.
The pulp is sweet and pleasantly scented and much like that of another close relative, the true passion fruit, Passiflora edulis.
The waterlemon is now grown in some regions of Southeast Asia where the climate is not suited for the true passion fruit.
