Dragon Fruit

Dragon Fruit or Pitaya is a curious fruit with a texture similar to kiwi. It has small black seeds that are edible. It is slightly sweet.

Quality Check

Dragon fruit should have bright, evenly colored skin. It should not have many brown blotches and the stem should look somewhat fresh. The flesh should have a slight give. You can just leave it on the counter to store or place it in a plastic bag and put it in the fridge.

Preparation

Most people eat dragon fruit from the hand. Cut the fruit into quarters and then peel off the skin. It has a sweet taste with a slightly creamy texture. The seeds are completely safe to eat. Just like a kiwi. You can also make drinks by juicing it or it can be used in a smoothie.
