The Fruit of All Our Leisures

I love living by the DeKalb Farmers’ Market. Everyone there is so nice, and I can’t believe how cheap the food is, and I love how it comes from all over the world, and there’s always something new to try. For instance, after the Professor and Sprout and I lunched there the other day, we were picking up the produce on our list and came across this.
Dragon fruit
Dragon fruit, it said. From an epiphytic cactus. So of course we brought it home. According to the sign, it can be served several ways. One is to peel it.

Then eat the fruit with a spoon.

It had a very mild sweetness to it, almost like melon. It would probably be delicious cold, as recommended, but we forgot to chill it first.

    I looked at one of these in the store yesterday and almost bought it simply because it was so lovely. Now that I know what the inside is like, I’m going back to get one!
