During my last visit to Chinatown as per this post, I stopped at a fruit stand and took a look at all the exotic fruits. I decided to buy a dragon fruit since I’ve never tasted one before and I was being particularly adventurous that day. I asked the lady, “how do you know when they are ripe?” Her response wasn’t that helpful; she said, “they’re all ripe.” I also asked her how to peel it and again, her response was, “you peel it like a kiwi.” I promptly responded, “how could that be since kiwis have fuzzy skin?” I had an inkling that I was becoming a nuisance so I purchased my dragon fruit and scurried away. When I got home, I did some research online and just went with my gut instinct and began cutting it up. The dragon fruit was tart and very refreshing. It’s not particularly sweet but it had a whole distinct flavor unto itself. It was almost too gorgeous to eat. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to cut a dragon fruit in case you feel like being adventurous!
