Dragonfruit

Posted by in Paleo

I went to a Vietnamese grocery store the other day and stumbled upon these unusual looking fruit.  Because I had never seen something like that before, I was drawn to the pink and green colors.  I held one in my hand and smelled it.  I wasn’t sure what else to do to determine what this could taste like.  At the same time, a kind Asian woman came up to me and said, “These are dragonfruit, they taste kind of like kiwis.  You should try one!”  Because I have quite the adventurous palate, I took her advice and bought a dragonfruit.When I got home, I immediately unloaded my groceries and took out a cutting board, eager to see what was inside.  The fruit was surprisingly easy to cut through.  I discovered white flesh with dark seeds on the inside.  I scooped out a spoonful and tasted it.  Mmm.  It does kind of taste like kiwi, but less tart.  I will definitely be buying more of these.Stay tuned for a dragonfruit recipe!
