Way back year 2005 when I saw this weird fruit at Cavite State University, the place where I used to work. The Dragon fruit. I never like the look, especially the flesh. My officemate offered one slice but I refused. She said I was good and insisted but refused it again. I was so stubborn . Ha Ha! I never encountered that fruit again because I resigned from from my job.
Year 2009. I met my previous boss at Cavite State University. She offered to work again as Research Assistant. The salary was good enough so I accepted it. Do you know what is the project ? Its about dragon fruit research and development! Oh my ! Its the fruit I refused to taste four years ago. I have no choice but to embrace this fruit.
Actually this fruits came from cactus. Tastes slightly sweet but tastes blunt most of the time. It also contains the nutrients found in other fruits. Based from my taste preference, I would prefer eating other fruits like mango, guava, apple, pineapple and soursop because they taste better. On the contrary, I love eating dragon fruit. Why? Because my vowel movement feels better everytime I eat this dragon fruit.
Dragon fruit has a lot of fibers which is known to aid in vowel movement. It also absorb excess fat we consume. There is one major drawback. This fruit is very expensive.
Dragon fruit can be processed into juice and wine.
