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!
