Dragon fruit grows on the Hylocereus cactus, also called Honolulu queen, whose flowers only open at night. It’s a tropical fruit native to Mexico and Central America. It tastes like a combination of a kiwi and a pear.
Dragon fruit flesh is mildly sweet, juicy and contains tiny black, crunchy seeds. Dragon fruits are naturally low in calories and rich in antioxidants. Its seeds are rich in lipids, and the fruit is also a source of Vitamin C and calcium.
Fun fact: Dragon fruit is actually a member of the cactus family! But don’t worry- we remove the thorns before we bring the fruit to you!
