For fun, Keith purchased a dragon fruit during one of our grocery shopping trips. None of us had ever had a dragon fruit before. I asked the man stocking the produce area what the fruit would taste like and he said, "nothing, it really doesn't have much of a flavor". He was right. It had the texture of a kiwi only a little creamier. I probably should have taken a picture of it before we sliced into it, but I didn't think to run for the camera until Keith had already cut it up.
I'm not sure why it's called dragon fruit. Megan asked if it's because dragons eat it. After a little research, we learned that the real name of the fruit is pitaya. It is high in fiber, vitamin C and calcium.
Would we buy it again? Not as a snack, but maybe to blend into a fruit smoothie for a nutritional punch. I think it would be good with some frozen strawberries and orange juice. The kids all enjoyed their taste, but didn't ask for seconds!
