Just saw that Monin carries a shelf-stable Passion Fruit Purée. Wonder how that would fare as a passion fruit syrup.

Anybody try it?

Nice find! I'll have to check it out. Here's a link:

A quick check on Amazon shows that they don't have the passion purée, but they carry other flavors and they are all highly rated. No HFCS, but a few preservatives and some artificial colors. All in all it's probably a great solution if you don't feel like plunking down the money for regular purée that won't last long.

I should also note, 27 different drinks in the Tiki+ app call for either passion fruit syrup or juice.

It'll probably taste like melamine and lead.

This prompted me to do a little investigation. It turns out sugar, like salt, creates an osmotic barrier, meaning it draws moisture out of bacteria. If the sugar content is high enough, bacteria can't live within it. Some molds can grow on top of it, but that's it. It's possible that the sugar content in the BG Reynolds passion fruit syrup is high enough that this is true. I put a bottle of it in my freezer and noted that it became thick but didn't freeze, likely because of the high sugar content. So it may be that the refrigerator is enough of a secondary preservative to keep it fresh for a long period of time, although not indefinitely.

Thanks for the tip, nomeus.

I haven't opened my BG Reynolds' Passion Fruit yet because its something I use so rarely and don't want to waste it. I have a Torani Passion Fruit Syrup open that I've hardly dented. I'd like to say that it is fairly decent but I can't comment on it - based on other Torani syrups its quite possible that it's trash.
