The Mother of Dragons

Dragon Fruit

It’s something that I’m not too familiar with.  I’ve never cooked with it.  Never really eaten it… but when people bring me in things to use in cocktails I will always try.  It’s a little weird. I was expecting for it to be overly sweet or have a tanginess that would drive my younger self crazy…  nope.  Kinda mild in flavor and has a pear like texture.  

Apparently the reason for dragon fruit’s allure is that is only lives for one night,  the plant blooms from evening to midnight and produces a PITYA fruit 6 times a year.  The yellow or pink flower is sometimes called a “moonflower” or “Queen of the night” the names for the fruit itself comes from the translation in other languages  – Dragon Scale – Dragon Crystal – Green Dragon – Fire Dragon Fruit – Dragon Pearl Fruit

Dragon fruit is high in vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, fiber, and antioxidants. While the flesh of dragon fruit does not have any fat, the seeds and center contain some healthy monounsaturated fats and protein. Dragon fruits are also a good source of dietary fiber and it looks really cool, not gonna lie. 🙂
