Passionately Prized Fruit Blended with Ice in Tanjung Sepat

Led by the sound of ice being shaved, I drew near to where a stall sits underneath a huge ficus tree. A Vespa, two dogs lazing & a man was sitting at the table beside the stall. This man runs both the stall & the passionfruit farm behind it. The look of curiosity on our faces paid off, as my girlfriend & I were invited to see how this unique fruit is planted & harvested. The tendrils of the passionfruit plants climb the trellises that Mr. Khor had built & his two runners (dogs) aptly named ”˜Pai Xiang Kuo’ (Passionfruit in Chinese) & ”˜Sen Qi Kuo’ (Miracle Fruit) watch over them with great interest. The fruit starts out green & ripens to a rose pink hue that is ready to eat. He was cutting fruits for us as he gave us a tour! Yummy…..

The name “Passion” in “passion flower” refers to the passion of Christ. The name was given by missionaries because the parts of the flower seemed reminiscent of the torture (the Passion) of Christ prior to his crucifixion.

  • The tendrils represent the whips used in the flagellation of Christ.
  • The ten petals and sepals represent the ten faithful apostles (excluding St. Peter the denier and Judas Iscariot the betrayer).
  • The flower’s radial filaments, which can number more than a hundred and vary from flower to flower, represent the crown of thorns.
  • The 3 stigmas represent the 3 nails and the 5 anthers below them the 5 wounds (four by the nails and one by the lance).

Very interesting discovery even though I feel that the 12 apostles should always remain as twelve because after Jesus rose from the dead, He went to Peter & asked him if he loved Jesus, 3 times, in a manner that would allow Peter who had denied Christ 3 times, to redeem himself & be restored by Jesus. The symbolism of this flower that bears such a marvellous tasting fruit is truly great! The flower is not to be an object of worship neither should it be idolised. God made all things good for mankind & passionfruit happens to be exceptionally delicious!

We ordered a cup of ice-blended passionfruit puree & it was the best drink I’ve ever had! The fresh, tangy & sweet fruit was the best thirst quencher for the afternoon stroll. You can take home some passionfruits at RM12 per kilogram or RM3.50 per cup of ice blended goodness. I should’ve bought 2 kilos. Escorted out by Pai Xiang Kuo & Sen Qi Kuo, I thanked Mr. Khor for taking us on a tour of his farm while explaining how the plant flourishes as the good leaves are pruned.
