dragon fruit

if dragons laid eggs they would look like these...and you would find them (where else?) in new york's chinatown selling for $4/pound.

it was my first time to see this exotic fruit named after a mythical creature. dragon fruits are also known as "pitahaya" in southern america and "strawberry pear."

looks intimidating, doesn't it? they also look like they would hatch into alien life forms.

Cute but weird looking aren't they? I had the same reaction when my students presented that fruit to me as their thesis topic. I thought it was inedible wehehehe. But hey, it is slowly being recognized as a miracle fruit, very high in antioxidants ;) The taste? Naaahh.. try one. wehehe ;)
