Last week I took a trip to my local Wegmans and although I was completely turned off by the hordes of people (this is why I never go) and horrible layout, I’m always impressed by the diversity in its produce department. ¬†I mean who else carries dragon fruit in Maryland? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it available!
Also known as¬†Pitaya, dragon fruit is mostly found in Southeast Asia, Mexico, Central and South America, and Israel. I think it’s also grown in Florida and Hawaii, hence their¬†scarcity¬†up here in the Northeast.
Nutritionally, dragon fruit is low in calories and pretty¬†high in¬†vitamin C.
Join me and The Boys as we try our first bites of dragon fruit. Evan’s reaction after realizing there’s was no baby dragon inside is priceless!
