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.
