I looked at this beautiful pink fruit in the fresh food section and decided to give it a try, and I came to know that it was the Dragon Fruit!! The name is apt because the tough exterior and the spikes feel forbidding somehow!! Have you also felt the same? Let me tell you that you are not alone! Then one day, I bought one to check the taste, and it disappointed me. The texture and taste both were a letdown. Then, a friend invited me for dinner and served some fantastic salad and dessert containing the Dragon Fruit!! Everything was delicious, and I could not help but ask my friend for second helpings and some advice on how to tell when dragon fruit is ripe or not!!
