How to eat a Dragon Fruit? - Dragon Fruit Salad!

Ever wonder how to cut open this exotic unusual looking Dragon Fruit? Here are a couple quick tips on how to enjoy a delicious locally grown Kona Dragon Fruit:

•Slice the fruit in half, lengthwise, as shown in the picture to the left.

•Scoop out the white (sometimes red or fuchsia) flesh onto a separate dish or bowl.

•The seeds are completely edible (much like a kiwi), so go ahead and dice up fruit into bite-size morsels.

•Next, dice up a ripened mango or papaya (or similar preferred soft fruit) and place into the beautiful dragon fruit shell.

•Mix in the diced dragon fruit and squeeze a wedge of lemon or lime over the fruit salad.

•Garnish with a sprig of mint (optional) and enjoy!

P.S. Locally grown Kona Dragon Fruit is on sale this week at your local Foodland and Sack N Save locations. They come in both red/fuchsia varieties or yellow/white varieties, so go ahead and try making this at home!

Beautiful Locally Grown Buddha's Hand

Buddha's Hand is a uniquely shaped and very fragrant citrus fruit grown locally here on Maui at Howard's Nursery. More well known in China and Japan for perfuming rooms and personal items such as clothing, this fruit is also given as a religious offering in Buddhist temples. According to tradition, Buddha prefers the "fingers" of the fruit to be in a position where they resemble a closed rather than open hand, as closed hands symbolize to Buddha the act of prayer.

Envy Apples available now at Foodland!

We’re working with farmers who think the same way we do here at Foodland - that taste is number one. These growers are the best and they leave the fruit on the trees longer, so the fruit actually ripens on the tree. That really allows the fruit to have a higher sugar content. So the fruit that you’ll find in our stores this summer will be the sweetest fruit available anywhere. The sweetest apples, cherries, berries, melons, peaches, pineapples, and a whole lot more that your family will ... more »
