Can you say GIANT Lilikoi?!?! This beauty was picked fresh from the vine in the Kauai Farmacy Gardens this morning for my little ones to enjoy. Giant granadilla, a.k.a Giant Lilikoi or Giant Passion fruit is packed with Vit A, B3, C, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Protein, Carbohydrates, & is high in dietary fiber. Inside the rind lies clear/pink-tinted, sweet, gelatinous, pulpy, grayish seeds. Refreshing & Yummy! This over-sized passion fruit contains a compound called passiflorine and has been used for centuries for reducing anxiety, acting as a sedative, reversing hypertension, relieving pain, and combating insomnia. We use the passion flower along with Valerian, another potent herbal inducer of drowsiness, in our Tranquility tea because of the incredible calming attributes on the nervous system. Our Tranquility tea: A delicious medium-bodied, calming infusion for general muscle relaxation and balancing the nervous system, can be found at www.KauaiFarmacy.com TRANQUILITY tea: Tulsi, Lilikoi, Lemon Balm, Tarragon,Kauai Vervain, Mint, Pineapple Sage, & Clary Sage. Giant Lilikoi was first introduced into Hawaii in 1880, and has been historically known to help with: Asthma; whooping cough; bronchitis; stomach issues such as intestinal worms & dysentery; treating scurvy; and in repelling toxins from the lower intestines. A GIANT relief for many!
