It was in Vietnam where I first learned of Dragon Fruit.
My first introduction to the Dragon Fruit Tree was an orchard behind barbed wire along the road. I was struck by the tree’s leaves, like jagged ticker tapes, hanging down like a haystack. To my eyes, the leaves had a cactus look to them. In this orchard, the trees were all short and stout.
The Dragon Fruit had a fuchsia-colored peel with a haphazard array of yellow, pointy protrusions that could be reminiscent of Dragon scales. The inner fruit is white with black spots; it was a soft fruit and had a sweet taste. I liked it.
I later purchased a Dragon Fruit at a local market and was thankful I had brought my Swiss army knife along on the journey.
