Best served chilled, Farmer Bob likes to make melon balls from them. You eat the flesh and seeds inside skin by cutting the fruit in half first. The flavor is mild and refreshing - a cross between a Kiwi and Watermelon. If you want to kick it up a notch try drizzling some Golden Passion fruit on it for a wow factor! Dragon fruit Martini's are in. Makes a wonderful juice as well. Sorbets and ice cream are being done and Bacardi has even launched a new rum flavor with dragon fruit. The future of this fruit is bright: why not try some today - we are ready for shipping.
