Dragon fruits grow on long, thin, vining cactuses that can be found climbing trees, fences, and walls.
Dragon fruit is frequently eaten raw, scooped directly from the rind with a spoon. Many people prefer to chill the pulp within the fruits before eating them. The pulp can be used to make smoothies, sorbet, and other desserts.
For a topical addition, remove the flesh with a melon-baller and add to green or fruit salads.
