Freaky Fruit Vol 5: Dragonfruit

I was pre-disposed to like dragonfruit because I heard them described as "what eggs look like on in the Klingon homeworld" and because they are bright pink. So it must taste as exotic as it looks, right?

Wrong. Although dragonfruit is ver refreshing and has a fun crunchy texture like a kiwi, it really doesnt do much for the tastebuds. They are purportedly better cold (according to Lily and Wikipedia), but only because it makes them a guilt free treat in hot weather. When someone describes fruit with "delicate aroma" and "low in calories" they secretly mean "doesnt taste like much."

Postscript: We are all on Rambutan watch because its the end of the season... :(
