picked up some dragon fruit this weekend, wasn’t really sure if i’ve ever had it, but couldn’t remember the taste either. so what the heck…let’s check this out.
VERY pretty on the outside, hot pink with cute looking leaves poking out. inside is completely opposite – white w/ black seeds.
from the vivid color, i was expecting a very sweet and amazing taste, but no – dragon fruit must be kiwi’s really disappointing cousin. the consistency is just like kiwi, and there are sometimes a tinge of sweetness, but overall, more like a bland melon.
i wouldn’t say i despise dragon fruit….but i wouldn’t buy it again. i did a little research, these suckers are grown on cacti – thought that was kinda cool.
