1. What is the Bracha on passion fruit? The Halachos of Brachos (Rabbi Bodner, p. 396) writes that it's HaEtz (I believe this is where we got it from when putting it up on the site). However, Vezot HaBracha (p. 397 says Passiflora which is the passion fruit) and Yalkut Yosef (Klalei HaBrachot p. 213) say it's HaAdama. Binyan Shalom (p. 98) explains that passion fruit is Haadama based on the halachot ketanot's rule that a plant with a hollow trunk, such as the passion fruit, is Haadama and not HaEtz.
