Dragon fruit is a fun and easy fruit to enjoy! Here's how you can eat it:

Selecting a ripe dragon fruit:

  • Look for a fruit with bright, evenly colored skin that yields slightly to gentle pressure. Avoid any fruit that is bruised, soft, or has wilted "scales."

Cutting and eating:

  1. Wash the dragon fruit thoroughly under running water.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut the fruit in half lengthwise, from stem to bottom.
  3. You have two options now:
    • Spoon it out:¬†Scoop out the flesh with a spoon, like you would eat avocado. Enjoy the sweet and slightly tart flesh along with the tiny edible seeds.
    • Peel and slice:¬†Peel the skin off with your fingers, similar to peeling an orange. Slice the flesh into bite-sized pieces.

Enjoying dragon fruit:

  • You can eat the dragon fruit plain, as a refreshing snack.
  • Add it to your favorite smoothie or yogurt bowl for a pop of color and flavor.
  • Dice it up and toss it into a fruit salad for a tropical twist.
  • Get creative! Dragon fruit pairs well with other fruits, nuts, and even savory ingredients like cheese.

Tips:

  • The skin of the dragon fruit is not edible.
  • The tiny black seeds are perfectly safe to eat and add a slight crunch to the fruit.
  • Dragon fruit can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
