Hurray!! You don't need to wait any longer. They are ready if they drop no matter what the color. Filter the juice from the seeds through a fine wire mesh and make juice. Use a spoon to grind the seeds against the mesh to break up the little jelly bags.

We usually order a box of 50 from California each year. Of course we do not know if they wait until they drop before collecting them but we do know if we dont wait a few days until they go nice and crinkly and have a good passion fruit smell they do not taste good.

We tried our first one this morning, it was delicious. I guess we should be getting them dropping for the next month. Yummy since it flowered for 6 weeks. Fruit number 3 dropped this morning.
By the way it has taken a few days since it has dropped to really get a nice strong smell.

I don't remember needing to age them like that, but if it works all the better. Enjoy.
