If you have read many of my blogs, you know that I love the people of China, their culture, and their food.  Sometimes when I am with Chinese friends and we are eating, I will let them order, but I won’t ask what something is that I don’t recognize. After I taste it, then I will ask what it is, because I want to be open minded about the new food item.

Here is a picture of one items that I didn’t recognize, but enjoyed eating. Do you recognize this item?

If you are like me and don’t know what this food is, it is called Dragon Fruit. To prepare Dragon Fruit for eating, you must remove the colorful exterior and then you will find a very interesting looking and delicious fruit. Do you want to know what this fruit looks like?

The fruit is pretty firm and delicious. I assume the black flecks are seeds, but I could be wrong about that. Regardless, this is a very interesting looking fruit both on the inside and outside, and it is yummy!

I want to encourage everyone to sample different foods from different cultures. You never know when you will come across something as interesting and delicious as Dragon Fruit!

What’s the most unusual foreign food you’ve ever tried?
