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!
