My Dragon Fruit Experience

I found two lovely looking Dragon Fruit at the HEB this morning! Will have them for dessert tonight. Here's a pic. I'll edit this post later with pics of the cut fruit and a description of the flavors and aromas!

The skin was remarkably easy to peal - as you can see by the picture to the right. Did not notice any aroma at all, but it looked just like the web pages, juicy with the pretty speckles of tiny black seeds. The texture was very similar to a pear and the taste extremely mild and refreshing. Reminiscent of a kiwi in texture so it's easy to see why they would be good for smoothies.

Very glad I tried them and will definitely have it again. Not sure what the season is like and hope I did not hit the end. Dragon Fruit and Kiwis would be very pretty on my black stoneware.


  1. They are interesting-looking indeed - can't wait to hear what you think of the flavor!

  2. Next time I think I'll put them on a platter with kiwis and strawberries. The flavors and colors should go very well. If I were a smoothie person, I'd give that mix a try. I may have to do so anyway, I do have a stick blender.....:D
