As spectacular looking as they are, the nutritional value of dragon fruit is impressive. Full of antioxidants, high in vitamin C, and other minerals, dragon fruits are extremely healthy and nutritious. Light flavor and a little on the mild side.
Eating dragon fruit is really simple because the red outer skin simply peels off the heart of the fruit. Just cut the fruit in half, gently scoop out the white fruit with a spoon. The red skin usually remains firm enough to be a bowl too, so definitely use the skin as a serving bowl. Chilling the dragon fruit in the fridge before serving also adds to the refreshing flavor and is helpful at firming up the texture if your dragon fruit is particularly soft.
