Following on the story I did on prickly pears is this flamboyant over the top cousin the Dragon fruit, also a member of the cactus family.
Celebrated for it’s sweet crunchy texture a cross between pear and kiwi fruit in flavour this fruit also has many nutritional benefits. It’s low in calories, high in fibre and rich in vitamins and nutrients. The most impressive part about this fruit must however be how beautiful it is, a striking centre piece to any fruit platter.
To serve dragon fruit, slice the fruit down the centre, you will see a pulpy inner section and a thick soft rind, using a tablespoon cleanly scoop the fruit out, the way you would an avocado. Be careful not to damage the soft rind as once you have diced the fruit you want to place it back into the rind for serving.
