Rainbowfish - that's exactly what I had thought. The fruits I bought ( and germinated the seed from) were almost black and "dimpled" and I assumed mine would eventually do the same.
I've been checking in the supermkt and just the other day, they had Passion fruit for sale. However, they looked exactly like mine - not quite "black" and smooth skins which was what tempted me to try the first one of mine.
I guess it is possible that growing it from seed means that my vine doesn't have all the attributes of the commercial variety. The only time I noticed "dimpling" on some of mine would have been 6 to 8 weeks ago when the fruit was still green. Could have been a bit dry as once watered, the dimpling disappeared.
Time yet tho ( if I can keep my mitts off them ).
