The government of Ecuador has asked USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the importation of passion fruit (Passiflora spp.) into the continental United States. APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment that lists potential pests likely to remain on the commodity upon importation if no mitigations are applied.

APHIS shares draft pest risk assessments to determine whether stakeholders have information that might lead us to revise the draft assessment before we identify pest mitigations and proceed with the commodity import approval process.

The draft pest risk assessment for passion fruit from Ecuador will be available for review and comment for 30 days. To view the assessment or submit comments, go to http://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant-health/risk-assessment-consultation
