Dragon Fruit & Rambuttan
Since we the USA is a global economy we are able to try vegetables and fruits from around the world.
The 2 fruits I want to introduce is Dragon Fruit & Rambuttan. International food stores like Wegman's carries these fruits once in awhile or your local Asian markets may offer it fresh or in a can. Dragon Fruit is usually sold fresh but Rambuttan can be purchased in a can.
Dragon Fruit is a fuschia color with you can say dragon like scales but not really. Purchase them when plump, not wrinkly and color is bright fuschia color. Cut the ends off then cut a thin slice into the skin and peel. The white with freckle spots is the endible part. The flavor is a mild sweet flavor.
Rambuttan fresh looks like lychee nuts that has thin stray hairy strands. Bite to crack open shell that is flexible and peel the shell. You'll have a beautiful while flesh that is so sweet and delicious. Peel the white flesh, there is a pit in the middle. It's just wonderful.
