The dragon fruit is a variety of cactus that may be similar to the prickly pear cactus. The vine is a cactus type that bears flowers and later become fruits. On the first time I saw a dragon fruit, I was amused but I did not buy until my brother-in-law said that it tasted like kiwi. Okay, I bought one to sample it. Actually it tasted better than kiwi.
Now that it is rainy season the dragon vine has lots of flowers and fruit. When the fruit turns red that means it is ready for harvest. In the picture are the fruits that I will be harvesting today.
Do you buy dragon fruit in the market?
