"Passion fruit production in major production areas in China and abroad declined this year because of extreme weather conditions. The decrease varied between production areas. The production volumes in Ecuador and Vietnam, for example, greatly decreased because of excessive rainfall, and the fruit was significantly less sweet. The product quality was less than ideal." This is according to Salmon of Jiangcheng Green Banna Ecological Food Co., Ltd.
"Passion fruit production areas in China are distributed over a wide range with major production areas concentrated in Guangxi, Fujian, and Yunnan, as well as Taiwan. Farmers most commonly plant the purple passion fruit variety that is most often seen on the market. The yellow passion fruit variety cultivated in South America, however, has a more concentrated flavor in comparison with the purple passion fruit variety. The fruit is more sour and also juicier."
"Our company owns 333 hectares of passion fruit plantation in Jiangcheng County, Pu'er City, Yunnan. We have introduced the yellow passion fruit variety Passiflora edulis var flavicarpa from abroad. We sell such products as organic passion flower starch, organic passion flower concentrated juice, and passion flower wine under our own brand 'Banna Ecological' to fruit juice and fruit product companies in first and second tier cities throughout China. We also export our products to Germany, New Zealand, and North Africa. Export currently accounts for around 50%-60% of our sales volume."
Processing factory and fruit juicer
"The season when yellow passion fruit matures begins every year in August and concludes in January or February in the subsequent year. This is if the weather conditions are regular. Our production volume increased this year in comparison with the previous year. This development is mainly because of our management methods. The government continuously encouraged local cooperatives and farmers working in the passion fruit industry. After a few years of initial set-up, our plantations have gradually begun to enter the period of abundant production."
Outside view of the factory
"We are optimistic about the opportunities for development of our yellow passion fruit and our processed passion fruit products in domestic and overseas markets. On the one hand, our yellow passion fruit is a characteristic product that stands out among the purple passion fruit in the market. On the other hand, our passion fruit plantation and fruit processing factory have passed USDA certification and European Union certification. There truly are few companies in China who supply concentrated juice of organic yellow passion fruit."
