STRAWBERRY & PASSION FRUIT CUPCAKES RECIPE

Viva StrawberriesThis recipe for Strawberry & Passion Fruit Cupcakes comes from the Viva Strawberries.

Viva strawberries are grown mainly in the Huelva region of southern Spain, but also in Morocco and Egypt in smaller quantities. The variety was established in Spain with unique growing characteristics that thrive on the continent with its short winter and spring days with high humidity.

The product of a ten year breeding program, Viva has been specifically developed by British breeder Peter Vinson to give British strawberry-lovers a berry of superior taste, sweetness and texture outside the British season.
