Dragon fruit is a stunning fruit related to the cactus. It has leathery, bright red skin which you don't eat and inside the flesh is either white or vibrant pink with tiny black seeds.
The flavour is relatively bland and is much improved with a sprinkle of lime juice.
Dragon fruit is high in fibre, vitamin C and B vitamins. The pink fleshed dragon fruit hold more nutrients in the flesh from phytochemicals in the vibrant pink pigment.
