Ever tried Dragon Fruit? I've noticed it in our grocery store here in the UK for a while, and then I saw
an article online a blog post on Randall's blog about it. Sorry for the delayed credit, Randall; forgot where I saw it!
Tonight was the night, after waiting two days for it to ripen. We cut it into quarters and each scooped out the flesh with a teaspoon.
The verdict: very mild with a surprising-looking inside.
David says it's like white kiwi without the kiwi taste.
Jason and Emily didn't care for it.
I thought it was interesting and pretty and certainly palatable, but definitely very subtle. Closer to pear and melon than kiwi, but with kiwi-like seeds, only more prevalent. A novelty but not something we need to add to our regular diet. Except it is full of Vitamin C and other great things apparently. So I'll keep it mind for the next time I need to keep dinner guests guessing what they're eating for dessert.

I dunno - it doesn't look very tasty.
Kudos for being adventurous and trying it!

Ha, you obviously haven't been keeping up on my blog as I posted about this over a week ago: http://rdphelp.blogspot.com/2008/04/post-over-on-my-friend-ryans-blog-about.html
Congrats on discovering my favorite weird fruit ;)

Interesting. Great last sentence.

We've had that one before! I don't think I could have described it as well as you did though - and I totally agree with your description! Maybe I would add that the texture was a bit spongy, but not disagreeable. A great thing to try once, but we weren't really hooked either.
