FRUIT OF THE DRAGON
One of the most beautiful tropical fruits
is now in season . . . the dragon fruit.
Popular in South and Central America,
and some parts of southern Asia,
this colorful fruit comes from
the pitaya cactus.
Beneath the pink soft shell
lies a sweet custard-like center --
with a creamy taste of kiwi and pear.
The fruit is high in fiber, rich in
vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
The season is short, so buy some
if you see dragon fruits in your market.
