These crazy looking, seemingly horrible sounding fruits, come in red and yellow colored skins. The flesh inside the red ones are either white or red. The red flesh tends to be sweeter.  The yellow-skinned ones always have white flesh.

Dragon Fruit is sometimes called the strawberry pear and is a tropical fruit that grows on a type of cactus.

Don’t be scared because these sound like scary things to eat. Dragon Fruit contain many healthy benefits and you should try to eat some when you can. The texture reminds me of the seeding part of the kiwi and the white ones are mild in flavor. My daughter suggests adding these to your smoothies.

So before we get into all the healthy stuff you should know about Dragon Fruit let’s take a look at how to cut one and see what it looks like inside.

Step One – Pick a Good One.

Step Two- Slice it in Half


Step Three- Slice each half into Quarters


Step Four – Peel the skin with your fingers.


Step Five – Eat It!

You can cut the pieces into smaller bite sized chunks after peeling it. Or just pick up and each with your hands.
