Dragonfruit field


Dragon fruit field

This is a small dragon fruit field in the northern Thailand province of Phayao. Dragon fruits are seasonal, but when they’re in season I eat my larger share of them. They remind me of a kiwi fruit in their taste and the texture of their flesh with tiny black seeds throughout. The good thing is they are much bigger so one dragon fruit is probably equivalent to ten kiwis. The taste is quite sweet with a slight accent of sour mixed in (just like a kiwi) and the flesh can either be the usual white, or a deep purple that can easily stain. In Thai, dragon fruit are called gaewmanggon [แก้วมังกร]. They have an odd looking purple skin and are about the size and shape of a nerf ball. You can see some pictures and read more about them in my past articles listed below.
