Where can I purchase Goya passion fruit puree/pulp?

6 posts in this topic

I would love to make some recipes that are calling for passion fruit puree/pulp. Would prefer to buy Goya but would settle for any brand at this point. Midtown or UES preferred but would travel elsewhere in Manhattan if necessary.

Thanks!

Look in the frozen section of any ordinary not-too-upscale supermarket in Manhattan. Your best chance of finding tropical ingredients is in predominantly Latino neighborhoods like Washington Heights or further uptown on the Upper East Side toward East Harlem, but I've seen these products in other neighborhoods as well.

Kalustyan's is where I go to purchase frozen fruit purees, but Perfect Puree can be pricey.

I grabbed the last tub of passionfruit puree a few weeks ago. Not sure if they have re-stocked. They can probably tell you over the phone.

You can find nearly all of the Perfect Puree varieties in the freezer section that's in the new half of the store.

Thanks. I was actually in Kalustyans a few weeks ago and saw all the fruit purees but did not see the passion fruit. I didn't have time to ask whether that was because they had sold out or because they weren't carrying it. I'll give them a call to see if they've restocked. If you've used the Perfect Puree yet, were you pleased with the quality? I've never used that brand before but some of the flavors they had sounded wonderful.

I've been very pleased with the quality!

Good luck with your search.

I've purchased it at Western Beef, mostly in Long Island and Queens. WB also has a 2 stores in Manhattan. The stores I've visited carry Goya as well as another brand I can't recall.
