If you’ve never seen one before, isn’t that cool ? It looks like one of the alien foods served on any of the original Star Trek episodes 😮 or an alien flower bud that’s going to kill the landing party’s expendable xtra with a poison gas poof..
I saw one for the first time a few months ago and picked 2 up.. And forgot about them.. The alien fruit had grown terrestrial mold on the outside, so I threw them away..
The other day while visiting dad, I picked a couple up more and today I ventured inside.. I did do a quick Google search so I would know the best way to get to the goods..
Its soft and easy to cut in half ( I cut lengthwise but it really doesn’t matter..
The dragon fruit is beautiful albeit resembling a TV show prop.. And the inside is dazzling in its simple black and white..
I read that people compare the taste to be between a kiwi and a pear.. I strongly disagree.. It has an ever so slight flowery taste, slightly sweet and what I can’t believe no one mentioned in my reading, an almost effervescent feel.. Remember pop rocks ? It’s much much much more subtle and effect though.. Very juicy but not drippy or sloppy.. Refreshing with no aftertaste.. There’s not much flavor but the flavor is unique.. The seeds are easily edible and doesn’t seem like your eating seeds at all..
I found an article that says a glaze of balsamic vinegar and simple syrup go great on it.. I’m defrosting chicken thighs now and am going to slay the other dragon to stuff the thighs with the fruit and inside and out with with the glaze 🤗
