This very pretty and delicious fruit is Native to Mexico, Central, South America and Southeast Asia. Taste: Drago fruit can be described as a cross between a strawberry and a pear. Its delicious red berry flavor can be enjoyed all by itself, infused with vodka or on top of any luscious dessert.
If you are looking for fruits that are filling and delicious, but will help keep your weight in check, dragon fruit is a perfect choice. A 100g serving of dragonfruit has only 60 calories.
Cut it in half length wise and see how gorgeous it is inside.
Run a small paring knife or spoon around the outer edge and into the bottom edges and the fruit will slide out beautifully.
And for a real wow factor. Dice it up and place it back in it's own natural bowl. Just beautiful, served all on it's own as a first course, even add a splash of light rum, vodka or pear brandy. I just love how Mother Nature outshines itself. Look at the beauty.....
This little gem is available from late June until December in Asian Markets. And when you are choosing your dragon fruit, do so like an avocado. They should be firm, with a little give to them when held in your palm. A half of each makes one delicious serving.
