On a trip to Chinatown on Saturday, I found a perfect example of the kind of fruit I buy on a fruit adventure: A Dragon Fruit. It's my first! Here's some pictures and how I cut it. It was really simple and easy. The flavor: Almost like a melon, but more mild. Delicious and cool. The texture: Slight crunch and juicy. Love the little seeds. Reminds me of a kiwi. I loved it, the kids liked it.
What's your favorite exotic fruit? Are you in a fruit rut? There's always the Exotic Fruit of the Month Club! My husband would be thrilled to be a member. ha
|Cut in half, length wise.|
|Scoop out white section with a spoon, like you would a kiwi.|
|Dice and serve in the skin. Simple and pretty.|
How much for this exotic fruit? Yikes. It's embarrassing. I'm hiding the price in shame after the jump.
The total came up to be $5 for one piece of fruit! No wonder I stick to the classics. Total splurge, but worth the adventure of trying something new.
