This is a dragon fruit, and it is simply one of the most beautiful fruits around. Surprisingly, it comes from several species of cactus. Also known as the pitaya, it is native to Mexico, Central America, and South America; although, they are also cultivated in a number of Asian countries such as Taiwan, Thailand, and the Phillipines. Depending on the type, they can have either a sour or sweet, yet delicate, flavor. The texture is akin to that of a kiwi, and whichever variety you choose, their beauty and rarety make them a show-stopper. Here's how to serve:
First, cut the fruit in half.
Next scoop out the inside with a spoon (similar to an avacado)
Finally, chop the fruit into bite-sized pieces,
and replace in the halves for serving.
