The Fearless fruit

Move over berries, because it’s time to pump up the drama with the flamboyant dragon fruit. Prominently red in colour and edged with green scales, this dramatic looking fruit juxtaposes its mild flavor – some might describe it as a cross between a kiwi and a melon. While some share the same antipathy for it, the dragon fruit has been popping out fearlessly – and rightfully so – as desserts or salads. Besides, since it’s the year of the dragon, why not let this understated fruit shine in its own unique beauty.

Health Benefits:

1) Good source of fiber, protein, iron and vitamin C.

2) Works great for asthma and cough.

3) Known to be a natural appetite stimulant, the dragon fruit is a good choice for anyone recovering from a loss of appetite after illness.
