This fruit is not a drag!
Dragon fruit, appropriately named for its scale-like skin, is found in the subtropical regions throughout Asia, Central and South America. This exotic cactus fruit is sweet, juicy and crisp, much like that of a kiwi or watermelon. The flesh, when eaten raw, is mildly sweet and low in calories, and has a nutty flavor. It is often converted into juices, purees, and wines, and sometimes used to flavor beverages or ice creams. Yum!
