I was introduced to dragonfruit when I visited China in 2013. Occasionally, I find them at specialty grocery stores. I got two of these marvelous fruits this week. And, as my Instagram followers will tell you, I enjoy capturing images of this unusual fruit.
The dragonfruit, or pitaya, is grown on bushes in tropical areas. Florida is now providing fresh dragonfruit, as are other countries.
I’m often asked what it tastes like: think off kiwi but much milder. It is full of nutrients and is actually very low in calories. It’s just expensive. But I still love it!
I’ve updated my latest images to my Flickr account and invite you to enjoy them visually!
