Dragon Fruit anyone?

When I was in Vancouver a few weeks ago I tried Dragon fruit for the first time. I won't really say I liked it, but it wasn't bad. I think it looks better than it tastes unless I just didn't get a good piece... Have you ever had it before?

I have never seen this in my life! I don't think I would like it either...you're so brave to try it!

I don't remember whether I've tried it or not. Maybe I did & the flavor didn't make much of an impression, one way or the other. I really like that first photo though! Is the stuff in the second picture what the fruit looks like on the inside or is it something else?

I tried it a couple of months ago...I felt the same way about it. It wasn't awful, but I don't think I'd just like to sit and eat it for enjoyment. :) My son thought the name was said it all. He didn't think anything with "dragon" in it could be good, because no one ever said dragons were yummy.

Merry Christmas!

Yeah, the second photo is of the dragon fruit cut up. I think it is kinda like a mixture of a kiwi fruit and an apple but not as sweet as I was expecting!

I never have. What did it taste like? Looks like poppy seed cake mixed with honey dew Mellon.

I want to say I had it when I was younger when my mom was going through her try a different fruit every day phase. I can't remember if I liked it though, she made us try so many different ones.

I use to be a Safety Director for a transportation company and produce was one of our largest hauls. I have NEVER heard of Dragon fruit before. It is beautiful and exotic looking. I would love to try it though..I will just know from what you have said not to expect it to be to sweet. Thank you for sharing this.

Hugs,
Regi

I have tried this and it was really sweet! I like trying new foods as long as it doesn't include brains, lol
