Friday/ dragon fruit

This supermarket is right next to my apartment building and sports new signage made of little LED lights.  (I think I said before that I like the old-fashioned neon signs much better).    I came away with a nice dragon fruit*, guavas and apples.

*Dragon fruit is called huǒ lóng guǒ 火龍果/火龙果 “fire dragon fruit” in Chinese and is also called pithaya or pitahaya.  It is the fruit of several cactus species, most importantly of the genus Hylocereus (sweet pitayas).   The cross-section picture is from Wikipedia.

  1. Hi Willem, Ons sien deesdae die “dragon fruit” hier in die supermarkte, maar dit is duur en wou nie waag om dit te koop en dan is dit vir ons oneetbaar nie. Hoe smaak dit? Ek het nou lus om een te koop en uit te probeer. Jy het nou vir ons die bres geslaan!! Dankie dat jy die pionier is.
    Mooi loop en sterkte. Tannie Adré
