Passionfruit puree - where can I buy it??
Does anyone know where to get Maracuya or passionfruit puree in San Francisco? Is it typically frozen or canned or packaged? I have no idea what to look for...
Thanks for any help!

I just looked at this website....this place looks awesome, but they don't sell passion fruit puree, only passion fruit concentrate....
Now that I think of it, I don't know if I've seen much puree of passion fruit anywhere, even at the places in the Mission. Definitely have seen concentrate though.

I was in Casa Lucas today and they have a very wide variety of frozen fruit pulps, including maracuya. It's Amazonas brand, from Colombia. They also have lots of other fruits, including: lulu, guayaba, granadilla and nancy. Several others as well.
I didn't look to see if it contains sugar or not.

I always see Goya passionfruit puree at Mission super markets in the frozen section. There's usually a whole bunch of flavors so they're hard to miss. They're in plastic bags sort of like the kind frozen berries and peas come in.
Alternatively, Asian markets like New Mei Wah or 99 Ranch will have passionfruit syrup. Some of them are corn syrup free, so I get that for cocktails and iced tea.

Perfect Purees are indeed fabulous but are quite expensive. For more affordable options, check out many markets in the mission. The puree is sold frozen and you can just defrost before using,
Casa Lucas is one of my favorites (it's on 24th, several blocks east of Mission) and they have a wide array of flavors-- Cashew, Passionfruit, Guava, Guava Banana, Pujo but you can also typically find passionfruit (Maracuya or Maracuja) at Evergreen Grocery on Mission between 21st and 22nd (a great spot for unsweetened tropical fruit juice concentrates too) or 23rd & Mission Produce
23rd & Mission Produce
2700 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110
I've seen Perfect Purees in various Whole Foods around the Bay Area...maybe the SF one will have it.
