How to Enjoy Red Dragon Fruit:
When it comes to enjoying delicious dragon fruit, there are a few key points worth considering. If the fruit is unripe it will appear green in color and if ripe its skin will be bright red instead. Too many deformed blemishes on the surface can also indicate that it’s overripe and should not be consumed.
Using a sharp knife, cut the dragon fruit in half lengthwise, then:
• Scoop out the fruit with a spoon, or cut it into cubes by cutting vertical and horizontal lines into the pulp without cutting into the peel.
• Push on the back of the skin to expose the cubes and remove them with a spoon or your fingers.
