Fruits of Thailand - 6 - Dragon Fruit - 'gaew man gaawn' - แก้วมังกร

Plate 1. - DRAGON FRUIT - 'gaew man gaawn' - แก้วมังกร

This unique looking fruit is mildly sweet with a leathery, slightly leafy skin. The flesh, which is eaten raw, is rather bland in its taste. It makes a great palate cleanser during a meal of otherwise spicy and flavourful food.
To prepare a Dragon Fruit for consumption, cut the fruit vertically into two halves. From here, either cut the halves into watermelon-like slices, or scoop out the two white fleshy halves with a tablespoon. Eating the fruit is sometimes likened to that of the kiwifruit due to a prevalence of sesame seed-sized black crunchy seeds found in the flesh of both fruits, which make for a similar texture upon consumption. The peak season is from May to October.1
