Dragon fruit

We tried an interesting fruit yesterday. The Chinese name is huo long guo, which mean fire dragon fruit. I think the English name is just dragon fruit. Apparently they're a hot item in China nowadays. Anyway, my mom got one in Chinatown Philadelphia -- they were $5 a pound -- which means this 2-pounder was $10!! It was quite tasty though, kinda like kiwi fruit, and very pretty.

$5 a lb? I picked one off my friends cactus. Cacti and there fruit aren't so exotic in CA, if you know where to look.
