I’ve walked by these fruits at the international market many a time and have always wanted to pick one up; however, the price always was a bit of a put off. Yesterday, I finally did it. Total cost was $4 and change and I am ready to share the results with you and give you a review. But before we get to that: What are Dragon Fruits?
Dragon Fruit, also called Pitaya, is the fruit of a cactus, Hylocereus undatus, to be exact. The fruit of this vine type cactus sports a unique look giving it the name dragon fruit. Was it Bruce Lee’s favorite fruit? Don’t know, but that would make a good story. :-p
How to eat it?
Cut it in half, scoop out the white stuff and eat.
What does it taste like?
Tastes and looks a lot like Kiwi, except white.
Is it worth it?
Probably once. Could be a good party favor / conversational item. If you want the taste, go for a kiwi instead.
