As one of the most popular flavors in Hawaii, Hawaiian Sun captures the deep distinctive flavor of the purple or yellow passion fruit. The native Hawaiians call it Lilikoi. The seeds were brought to Hawaii from Australia in 1880 and were planted in East Maui in the District of Lilikoi from which the name stayed with the fruit.
The fruit grows on flowered vines with a mature fruit measuring 1-1/2" to 3" in diameter and round in appearance. The fruit is filled with fragrant juicy pulp and edible seeds. They can be harvested within 1 year from planting to maturity from June thru January. The seeds from a harvested fruit can be replanted almost immediately thereby making it one of the most consistent and most produced fruit in the islands.
Hawaiian Sun started producing Lilikoi passion fruit drink in 1952. Containing no caffeine, this flavor has been one of the core items in the vast array of tropical flavors offered. It is currently the 3rd fastest flavor in the line, but is making a strong bid to become the most popular flavor offered by the factory. Made with cane sugar and non carbonated makes Hawaiian Sun drinks the leading tropical fruit flavored drink manufacturer in the state.
