Dragon Fruits at 168 Market - Very Inexpensive

liu | Jan 4, 2010 07:56 PM

This past weekend, 168 Market had a bin of dragon fruits for $1.99/lb.
They were ripe, but not mushy, and I purchased a pretty large one for just over $2.00. I have never seen them at this price.

However, I do not understand their appeal. They are a gorgeous red color. When cut, the red skin against the speckled white interior is breathtakingly beautiful...but they have very little flavor.

What am I missing?
