Check this out. It’s called dragonfruit. Raargh!
I ate some for the first time last Thursday. It’s about the size of an apple, with a faint sweet smell. I had absolutely no idea what I’d find when I opened it up. Most grocery stores stock it some of the time.
On the inside it has a uniform texture with small crunchy seeds. It tastes sweet, although it’s not a strong taste. It’s very similar to kiwifruit in both taste and texture – and, like kiwifruit, is perfect for eating with a spoon.
Go now and do likewise.
PS Durian is awesome too, but not for the faint of heart.
