dragon fruit

The other day, Hubby popped into the local grocers for milk and came out with milk and dragon fruit. 

I have to say--I have enjoyed the unusual and untried (at least to me) fruits I have been exposed to since moving to New Zealand. I have fallen in love with feijoas and golden kiwi fruits. So, I was excited about something new to try. 

The dragon fruit doesn't look like much, but the inside was pretty. I can't say I was excited by the taste, but the texture was unusual. I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to buy one again but it seems that Pepsi made it a limited edition for the X-Factor in 2012.

Maybe there is a secret to the preparation of the fruit to make it a bit more tasty. You are a brave soul for trying all new things.

Dear Betty, I have seen this kind of fruit on the marketi. It looks fantastisch, but I have never tasted one. Does it grow in N-Z? Groetjes from Holland
