Flora the Dragon Fruit Slayer

8/27/10

Jeff and I went grocery shopping last weekend and on my way through the produce section, I found this:
I had never seen a dragon fruit like this before. I'm sure I've eaten plenty of things with dragon fruit flavoring. I wanted to try the real thing, though. So in our grocery basket it went.
This is what it looks like on the inside. For those of you who've never tried dragon fruit, it has the texture (and seeds) like kiwi. Jeff says it tastes like a kiwi with less flavor. He doesn't really like it. 
I love dragon fruit! I am eating one as I type this. It tastes good, looks good, and can even be used as it's own serving dish. What's not to love?

  3. Their is a pink dragon fruit (the meat is nearly pink florescent in color) that is beautiful when made up in a fruit salad. Dragon fruit is a fun fruit - mild but nice.

  4. Yes I have tried it in drink form. It is delicious! I'm going to try to make a fruit salad with it next time.
