Where do maracujas come from?
The maracuja is an exotic fruit from South America, where the fruit is grown in countries such as Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The special thing about a maracuja tree is that it bears fruit all through the season, starting 6-7 months after planting. By this time the trees are quite sizeable - up to a few metres high. As soon as the fruit turns from green to yellow on the tree, the growers start harvesting.
