Protected by a diamond hide,
Teeth, and claws for tearing wide,
A heart of snow beats deep inside
the dragon’s fiery chest.
This stunning specimen measures almost ten inches across and precedes a fruit unlike anything you’ve ever seen or tasted (unless, of course, you have seen and tasted one) – dragonfruit. With a flavor somewhere between a kiwi and honeydew melon, dragonfruit is often sweet and sour without being overwhelming on either front, and in the middle of a hot summer day, few produce selections will quench your thirst and cool your brow like this rare and exotic treat.
