Dragon fruit





It cost $8.00 US. It tasted slightly sweet and rather bland, the texture was like cherymoya..kinda custard like. It wasn't good enough to justify the cost, but alot of times exotic fruits that are imported just dont taste as they would if you got them fresh.


whoa thats is awesome Dragon Fruit love the name I WANT TO TRY. Where is this fruit grown?


A pitaya (pronounced /pɨˈtaɪə/) or pitahaya (/ˌpɪtəˈhaɪə/) is the fruit of several cactus species, most importantly of the genus Hylocereus (sweet pitayas). These fruit are also known as dragon fruit (from Chinese huǒ lóng guǒ 火龍果/火龙果 "fire dragon fruit" and lóng zhū guǒ "dragon pearl fruit"), strawberry pear, nanettikafruit, and thanh long (Vietnamese 青龍). Native to Mexico and Central and South America, the vine-like epiphytic Hylocereus cacti are also cultivated in Southeast Asian countries such as Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. They are also found in Okinawa, Hawaii, Israel, northern Australia and southern China. Hylocereus blooms only at night; they have large white fragrant flowers of the typical cactusflower shape, that are often called Moonflower or Queen of the Night. Sweet pitayas have a creamy pulp and a delicate aroma.

Here's another fruit experiment. These are Leychees. They tasted terrible! I couldnt swallow a bite! The texture was slimy, the taste was overly sweet yet bitter! (dont they looklike tiny durians?!) Id rather eat a durian!






Your lychee don't look like they are ripe yet. The ones I buy are brownish red, and the twins LOVE them. I was experimenting with all the girls, and each week I would buy an "exotic" fruit for them to try, lychee, dragon fruit, persimmons, kumquats, fresh figs, pomellos...anything I could find that wasn't "apples/oranges/bananas". The rules were that they were to try a small taste of them, and see what they liked. If they didn't like it, they didn't need to eat any more. The purpose was to get them used to experimenting with new foods. They had a lot of fun with it, and they discovered things about food and themselves that they never knew. Because i encourage them to try new foods, and bring "exotic" food in the house, they aren't afraid to experiment.

So, now I want to find a horned melon...I've never seen those before.

One problem Im finding with "exotic" fruit is that it just isnt good out of it's element. I had a churymoya (sp?) in Hawaii and it was the best thing I ever ate! Like a delicious pear cutstard. HERE I bought one for $11.00 and it was horrible. Had no taste, had no texture..I think these fruits might really need to ripen on the plants! Im glad that the lychees you bought were good, and maybe mine weren't ripe, although they seemed ripe by smell and texture. Now Im afraid to try again!
Oh and the horned melon tasted like a sweet cucumber!!

I bet the girls would love that. Maybe I'll see if there is a place in Lethbridge that sells it. My hick town is doing good if I can get potatoes and apples here. Exotic fruit to these guys are mandarin oranges and bananas! =S
