How to Eat Dragon Fruit

How do you eat dragon fruit? It’s easy. You slice it in half and eat it with a spoon, or simply peel off the skin and slice it into bite-size pieces. The skin is not edible. The inner dragon fruit is similar in texture to a kiwi fruit. The fruit is filled with small seeds that are edible, they add a little texture, but for the most part they are unnoticeable. Dragon fruit is found readily in Asian food markets. The color of the fruit varies from reddish to yellow. Most dragon fruit sold in Asian Markets are reddish skinned with white flesh. As the fruit ripens the “scales” will wilt and begin to brown. The fruit will sweeten as it ripens. Dragon fruit grows in tropical climates on cactus plants. Red dragon fruit with white flesh is the most popular and primarily comes from Asia. Dragon fruit from Mexico and Central America will have reddish flesh inside. Dragon fruit is packed with nutrition and easy to eat, but I’ve found it to be a little pricey in the USA. How much is dragon fruit in your area?
