The 'hundred-flavor-fruit' that thrives in China's Yunnan

Coming all the way from the Amazon tropical rain forest in South America, the passionfruit found its new heaven across the rich soils in southwest China's Yunnan Province. Introduced to China in late 1980s, it was widely cultivated in Yunnan Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region since then. The Chinese translation of passionfruit – "bai xiang guo," literally translates to "hundred-flavor-fruit" for its rich flavors, such as guava, pineapple, lemon, mango, plum and many other tropical fruits.
