High in vitamin C , they are rich in phosphorus and calcium and are free radical fighters known to contain phytoalbumin antioxidants and also have been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Best served chilled, I like to make melon balls from them. You eat the flesh and seeds inside skin by cutting the fruit in half first.

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 the fruit is bright
