Re: Going Veggie

And now to continue teacake's adventures with fruit..

The Dragon Fruit. Presumably because it looks like a dragon egg. This is the fruit of a cactus and grows commonly in southeast Asia as well as northern Australia, South America and Mexico.




A very pretty crimson.. and inside:




They peel with no effort at all..




Another fruit seen in often in science fiction fruit bowls

Texture is soft, slightly crunchy, light. Not as dense as a kiwi. Taste is pretty much nothing, watery, barely sweet at all. The seeds add some nice texture. This would look very pretty on a fruit plate.
