White and Black and Pink All Over

Because we never like you to get too comfortable with the produce in your repertoire, we’ve got another rare fruit for you, just to shake things up.

Make it a weekend goal of yours to track down a dragon fruit. A member of the cactus family, it tastes like the fruity lovechild of a pear and a strawberry, and has a seed-studded white interior that looks more like Cruella De Vil’s fur coat than fruit flesh.

You certainly won’t find the pink, spiny fruit at the greenmarket - it hails from the tropical climates in Central America - but there’s still hope. Dragon fruits came to the U.S. as imports just this spring - now they’re free to shake up fruit bowls everywhere.

They grow them here in Thailand too. The "trees" are so strange looking!
